Canadian Olympic Committee named one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada

TORONTO (April 26, 2024) — The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) and the Canadian Olympic Foundation (COF) are proud to be recognized as one of the Best Workplaces™ in Canada for the fourth time by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada.

“This recognition is a testament to the strong culture each and every member of our organization has helped cultivate together,” said David Shoemaker, COC Chief Executive Officer and Secretary General. “Our mission to transform Canada through the power of sport would not be possible without this incredible team and I can’t wait to see what we continue to accomplish together on the road to Paris 2024 this year and beyond.”

The announcement was made at a gala event held on April 23 in Toronto. The results are based on the 2023 Trust Index© annual survey results and independent assessment programs and processes by the Great Place to Work® Institute Canada. The 2024 Best Workplaces™ in Canada is also published as a Special National Report in The Globe and Mail today. Earlier this year, on January 30th, the COC was also named to the Best Workplaces™ for Today’s Youth 2024 list.

The COC, along with the COF, has 118 permanent employees who primarily work out of offices in Toronto and Montreal.

“A purpose-led work culture is becoming increasingly important in today’s age. The COC is proud to provide that while also creating a sense of pride and belonging,” said Candice Maxis, COC Chief People and Culture Officer. “Being named part of the Best Workplaces ™ for the fourth time is really special. What is more critical for us is that we sustain what makes us strong while striving to be our very best. We are looking forward to continuing that work together.”
