EllisDon Three-peats as a Platinum Member of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Feb. 22 /CNW/ - EllisDon has achieved Platinum Club member status for the third
consecutive year with Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies program. The current award year, 2010,
marks the ninth consecutive year that EllisDon has been named to the 50 Best Managed Companies list.
EllisDon joins new winners, as well as Requalified and Platinum Club members, at the annual 50 Best
Managed gala that is to be held in Toronto on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

Late in 2010, EllisDon was named, for the tenth consecutive year, as one of Canada's top employers in
the 2011 Best Employers in Canada study conducted by Aon Hewitt (previously Hewitt Associates).
News of the 2011 Best Employers in Canada win comes on the heels of EllisDon having been named, for
the second consecutive year, as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers, based on the editorial project
managed by Mediacorp Canada, Inc.

"These companies we see through the Best Managed program really are the backbone of the Canadian
economy", explained John Hughes, Partner, Private Company Services group with Deloitte, a national
sponsor of the Best Managed program.

Established in 1993, the Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies is a national awards program, recognizing
Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative
ways. Applications are reviewed by an independent judging panel that evaluates how companies address
various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership,
leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to
facilitate growth.

Geoff Smith, EllisDon's President and C.E.O., sums it up: "We should each be setting our individual
goals based on the things we love doing and the accomplishments we aspire to do. We need everyone to
be fully, intellectually engaged in the business of growing a great company together, achieving personal life
goals, and equally ensuring that the people you work with achieve theirs as well."

About Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies
Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies continues to be the mark of excellence for Canadian-owned and
managed companies with revenues over $10 million. Every year since the launch of the program in 1993,
hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent
process that evaluates their management skills and practices. The awards are granted on three levels:

Best Managed has launched an online community for private companies: a new Best Managed channel on

new micro-site is aimed at showcasing Best Managed insights gleaned over our 18 years of celebrating the
stars of Canada's private company stage. For further information, visit www.canadas50best.com.
