Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to building a diverse workforce and ensuring that we have an open, inclusive workplace. Our focus is quite simple - supporting great people to develop themselves and their careers. We are so much stronger when people know they are accepted and valued for who they are and what they bring to the workplace.

‘Do What’s Right’ is at the top of our Maple Leaf Values for a reason. It is because we deeply believe that by acting with integrity, being responsible and treating others with respect we will be the kind of company that people will be proud to work for, and want to do business with.

Living this value every day means that we need to embrace the diversity that our people bring to the workplace – in a culture where people respect and value our differing experiences and perspectives.

We empower our people to grow – and we have tremendous examples of people who have built rewarding careers through passion, growth and development at Maple Leaf. Here are some of their stories:

  • Women in Leadership. We are committed to attracting and retaining talented women, developing and advancing them into leadership roles throughout the organization. The meat industry has traditionally been male dominated, but we have been challenging that status quo for years. Great talent is prevalent in all genders, and it is important that we are an attractive employer to everyone.
  • Newcomers to Canada. Much of Canada’s future growth will depend on the success of the growing communities of new Canadians. We are committed to attracting and fully integrating talented newcomers to Canada into our workforce. We value being part of a new beginning in Canada for people and their families.
