Credit Valley Conservation Named a GTA Top Employer for Fourth Year in a Row

December 06, 2023 – For the fourth year in a row, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) was named as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers (2024). CVC was recognized for encouraging employees to adopt healthy habits with seasonal wellness challenges, offers paid Wellness Days (up to three per year) to help enhance employees’ mental health and wellness and offers paid sick time to give employees peace of mind while prioritizing their health (up to eight days annually).

“Winning this award for a fourth time is a great honour and reflects our commitment to supporting our employees,” said Quentin Hanchard, Chief Administrative Officer for CVC. “Our team is full of talented individuals who continue to do outstanding work on behalf of the communities we serve and we could not have won this award without them.” 

CVC’s flexible work options is highlighted as another reason why it was selected as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers. CVC supports a healthy work-life balance of its employees by providing flexible work options, including a hybrid work option, flexible work hours, 35-hour work week (with full pay), shortened work week, telecommuting and an earned days off program.

CVC helps its employees plan securely for the future with a defined benefit pension plan and retirement planning assistance and offers phased-in work options to help those nearing retirement manage their transition. 

CVC also offers development opportunities for employees at various stages of their career, from paid internships and co-op placements for those just starting out, to mentoring and subsidies for tuition and professional accreditation for those looking to build their skills. This ensures employees grow with the organization and continue to innovate through their careers.

Earlier this year, CVC was recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers for its many green initiatives and for leading by example and demonstrating in the workplace their commitment to the local environment.
