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

Now in its 27th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains 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 caliber of their management abilities and practices.

A trusted family-owned business since 1947 and an industry leader, Arbor Memorial offers a local feel 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 again 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 hard work of our employees throughout our organization, and how this reflects to the level of service we are honoured to provide to families across the country.”

Being recognized for a third straight year demonstrates Arbor’s commitment to the families it serves by pursuing innovation and operational excellence; and recruiting, developing and retaining the best employees. The company takes great pride in being recognized for its continued adherence to the standards of excellence laid out by the selection committee.

 Arbor is proud that many of its employees, including those on the senior management team have well over two decades tenure with the organization. It is Arbor’s belief that this longevity and commitment to the organization, while working in one of the most sensitive and challenging industries, speaks both to the company’s dedication to maintaining an engaged workforce, and the privilege it is for Arbor to provide expert and compassionate guidance to its customers, whose needs are always top-of-mind.

 “It is a pleasure to recognize Canada’s Best Managed Platinum companies who have consistently raised the bar on what it means to succeed today and in the future,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “They set the highest of standards when it comes to best-in-class customer service, a highly engaged and diverse workforce and being able to give back to the communities in which they live and work.”

 Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2020 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. It is our privilege to provide expert guidance and customized services that help families honour, respect and celebrate loved ones.
