Credit Valley Conservation named a GTA Top Employer for second year in a row

Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) was named one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers (2022) for a second year in a row. CVC was recognized for prioritizing social connectivity over the past year, organizing a variety of events to help employees engage with each other including remote cooking competitions, mastery workshops hosted by staff, virtual competitions and activities that helped engage employees and their kids, and much more.

CVC helps its employees plan securely for the future with a defined benefit pension plan and retirement planning assistance.

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.

“It’s an honour to be named one of Greater Toronto’s top employers for a second year in a row, said Deborah Martin-Downs, Chief Administrative Officer for CVC. “This award is a reflection of our commitment and support to our employees who continue to do great work on behalf of the communities we serve.”

This year again, CVC adapted to the pandemic and continued to support 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.
