Indigenous relations behavioural competencies interpretive guides for hiring

Last updated: November 17, 2021

For the hiring process

The Indigenous relations behavioural competencies helps the BC Public Service improve our individual and collective abilities to work effectively with the Indigenous peoples of British Columbia.

The 17 competencies were developed from working with Indigenous peoples in B.C. for BC Public Service employees who live on the traditional territories of Indigenous peoples across the province. It's recommended to include at least one of these competencies in your assessment process.

We have created an interpretive guide for each of the Indigenous relations behavioural competencies. Using these guides during the hiring process will assist in the interpretation and evaluation of applicant responses to interview questions.
