December 13, 2022 – Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) was named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers (2023) for a third year in a row. CVC was recognized for encouraging employees to adopt healthy habits with seasonal wellness challenges and offering paid sick time to give employees peace of mind while prioritizing their health (up to eight days annually).
CVC helps its employees plan securely for the future with a defined benefit pension plan and retirement planning assistance and also 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.
“Winning this award for a third 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.”
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.
Throughout 2022, CVC continued to advocate for our local natural environment by supporting municipalities and residents with vital services like flood forecasting and warning, tree planting and greening programs to mitigate and adapt to climate change. CVC is proud to work with partners in government and across the watershed to lead protection, restoration and enhancement of our natural environment.
Greater Toronto’s Top Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Employers are graded on eight criteria and compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
