We are proud to announce that we have been certified as a Great Place to Work® after a thorough, independent analysis conducted by Great Place to Work Institute® Canada and in the USA. This certification is based on direct feedback from employees, provided as part of an extensive and anonymous survey about their workplace experience. 

Our Chair and CEO, Dr. Alan Ulsifer shares “We are extremely proud to have earned this certification. Our team members spoke, and our leadership team is listening to do our best to create strategies to make us an even better place to work every day.”  

Nancy Fonseca, Senior Vice President of Great Place to Work® Canada, says that a great workplace is about the level of trust that employees experience in their leaders, the level of pride they have in their jobs, and the extent to which they enjoy their colleagues. “Our data shows that great workplaces benefit from stronger financial performance, reduced turnover, and better customer satisfaction than their peers. What’s more, work environments with trust at the foundation are ripe for innovation, agility, resilience and efficiency,” Fonseca said.
