be recognized in this way," said President and CEO Brian Fulton. "We strive to
be an employer of choice and this confirms that we are headed in the right
direction. Knowing we rank so highly with those who work here is really the
best part."
    "We have a very proactive, hands-on approach," says HR manager, Gayle

over year, the input provided by our employees has proven invaluable in the
development of effective policies and practices."

employees and mirrors the renowned Best Employer in Canada initiative, run by
partner Hewitt Associates. It is a very detailed and competitive process. This
year, more than 250 companies across Canada registered to participate in the
study.
