Our people


We aim to build a strong, inclusive and progressive culture, where people want to grow their careers and do their best for clients, communities and one another.

For the second year in a row, the vast majority of our employees worked from home, and we thank our leaders and their teams for being open and innovative in how they approached work, stayed connected and remained productive. Throughout the pandemic, employee feedback has led to the development of helpful resources and wellness initiatives, and the decision to adopt a hybrid work model in the future.

Wellness at work

Caring for our peoples’ emotional, financial, physical and social wellness was a strong focus for us again in 2021. We’ve adapted our wellness programs to fit our work-from-home world with fitness sessions, counselling services, financial seminars and social activities delivered online. Our focus on wellness was a big reason why our operating companies were recognized as top employers in Canada and the Greater Toronto Area.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion

We are committed to being a leading voice for advancing DE&I across the financial services industry. More than 150 people are involved in our executive and business councils, DE&I Centre of Excellence and business resource groups representing women, Black, 2SLGBTQIA+ and Indigenous communities – helping us execute our three-pillar strategy. Together, we held events and observances to increase awareness and foster learning and engagement. In addition, our people leaders are required to develop plans that advance DE&I within their teams.
