Some of our Favourite Events of the Year
As an inclusive community, we celebrate our LGBTQ+ colleagues every year by organizing a week of activities dedicated to providing information and creating a fun experience. This year we promoted diversity by hosting Pride discussion sessions, and themed hikes and movies nights.
After a long summer at the lake, all colleagues are invited to unwind at the Brewster Barn for a full staff Hoedown. The night features live music, beef hips on pitch-forks and axe throwing. This barn party is something that you don’t want to miss. Get a sneak peek here.
The Annual Holiday Gala is held in the Mount Temple Ballroom and is a beautiful evening of dinner and dancing with tons of great prizes and trips given away! It is a favourite night for colleagues to get dressed up and celebrate the holiday season. Star Colleague of the Year and Leader of the Year award winners are also announced, which adds to the excitement of the holiday gala.
