Arbor Memorial Inc. is excited to announce that we have been selected as a winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the second straight year.

Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

A trusted family-owned business since 1947 and an industry leader, Arbor Memorial offers a local touch with a national reach. The company has over 120 locations in communities across Canada, providing services to over 25,000 families annually.

“We are so pleased to be selected for a second year as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” says David Scanlan, Chairman and President & CEO of Arbor Memorial Inc. “This recognition is testament to the dedication of our employees to their work and to the families who we’re honoured to serve across the country.”

Being recognized for a second year demonstrates Arbor’s commitment to our families by pursuing innovation and operational excellence; and recruiting, developing and retaining the best employees. Many of our senior management have over 25 years’ tenure with the organization, speaking both to our desire to have an engaged workforce, and our staff’s dedication to providing ethical, expert and compassionate guidance to our clients.

 “This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” says Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies should be proud of this achievement, and their responsibility in acting as role models for other Canadian businesses.”

 Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2019 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

 With over 2500 dedicated and highly-trained staff, Arbor has solidified itself as a standard-bearer in the industry, with a long history of excellence and strategic growth.
