We've been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers for 2015 forĀ our exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs.

The award distinguishes us as a preferred employer in Canada, helping attract the best and brightest talent.

Promoting a work environment centered on the values of inclusion and respect, we're recognized for how we embrace all individual team members.

Canada's Best Diversity Employers competition is now in its ninth year, recognizing leading organizations when it comes to creating inclusive workplaces for employees from five diverse groups:

  1. Women
  2. Visible minorities
  3. People with disabilities
  4. Aboriginal peoples
  5. Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) peoples

Winners are selected based on submissions to the annual Canada's Top 100 Employers. We've been previously recognized in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
