Connecting Indigenous job seekers and employers through inclusive technology & community partnerships.

We are building a future where Indigenous job seekers have equal access to employment opportunities at businesses across Canada.

Our Children's Medicine bridges the gaps between Indigenous job seekers, Canadian businesses and non-profit agencies to eliminate barriers to employment.

Using  assessment-based hiring technology partners, job seekers create an online profile that eliminates the resume and instead highlights skills, cultural, traditional and lived experiences.

"With OCM, I was encouraged to think about what aspects of my culture could benefit me in the workforce, skills I hadn’t used before when applying for work. I now work full-time at OFIFC in Toronto!"

"OCM has finally found a way to advance our community without sacrificing our cultural skills and experience. They took their time, and listened, and I wish they were around years ago!"

“As an integrated engineering consultancy serving our clients in remote northern communities, we firmly believe that employing and training local Indigenous community members is critical to our success and our clients’ success. When given the task to find EIT’s for our Thunder Bay and Sudbury teams, they turned around a great list of candidates within’ a few weeks! To top it off, they’ve been an absolute pleasure to work with and I’m excited about our joint commitment to give recruits the training and experience they need to advance their careers!"
