META believes that diversity drives creativity and innovation. META was one of the first companies to commit to the 50 – 30 Challenge, an initiative between the Government of Canada, business, and diversity organizations. This project aims to help businesses develop a plan to improve access to job opportunities for underrepresented populations; racialized persons, people who identify as LGBTQ, people living with disabilities, as well as First Nations, Inuit, and Métis. The goal is to have a workforce that is representative of Canada, including for positions of influence and leadership on corporate boards and in senior management.
META regularly participates in initiatives and works to measure against the goals of the 50-30 Challenge.
META's workplace continues to be inclusive of ethnic and religious diversity, which the company believes is not just a business advantage, but it has become a core business strategy.
META offers equity incentives to eligible employees. It is an equal opportunity employer, attracting talented employees and encouraging diversity and equality. META has worked hard to build a culture of inclusion and diversity across the organization.
META’s new 68,000 square foot R&D and manufacturing process development facility is situated on the outskirts of Halifax Nova Scotia in a location that is accessible to both inner city and suburban communities. The new facility will provide additional job opportunities for all the communities around the area and is centrally located, situated on public transit routes, and is close to major arteries that connect to all Metropolitan Halifax. META expects to move its current HQ (Woodside, Dartmouth) to the new facility in 2022.
