Everything our team does is truly ‘made-in-Canada’. Whether it’s a performance management approach, a labour mandate or anything in between, we are the ones who assess needs, figure out solutions and put them into practice. This means we need HR professionals who always identify needs and new trends, are confident to raise issues and work in collaborative teams to find and implement solutions. This takes strong collaboration, flexibility, communication and problem solving skills.

Our HR team includes:

  • Generalists who are embedded into the business – in our plants, distribution centers and offices – working with functional and people leaders to make sure we have the people we need.
  • Specialists who use their expert knowledge to create practical, high impact solutions to fit our business needs – working with our HR generalists and functional and people leaders.

We have had great success in moving people through generalist and specialist roles, plant-based and office-based roles and giving experience through special projects. If you join our team we will work with you to find the right challenging experiences, and learning and development to help you meet your personal and career goals. You can forge your own HR career path here, it’s not one size fits all.
