A bit about us.

We offer employees competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits, and facilitate developmental training throughout the year to encourage professional and personal growth. Our Leslieville office is located on the second floor of a historic bank building so, regretfully, it is not a fully accessible space. We recognize the need to build a culturally diverse workplace and strongly encourage applications from female and minority candidates.
