  • Possible frequent travel (day trips).

We offer:

  • A strong corporate culture based on collaboration, respect, effective communications, teamwork, and continuous learning.
  • An excellent compensation package that includes a competitive salary, minimum of three weeks holidays per year, extended medical, dental, life insurance, employer matching RRSP plan, and profit sharing.
