We offer a positive work environment and a competitive compensation and benefit package (after completion of the probationary period) including an extended Health, Dental, Long Term Disability, Life Insurance, Employee Assistance and a RRSP program. Other perks include paid sick leave, gym membership, and professional development opportunities.
