During a year which has been challenging for both the death care industry and the families they serve, Arbor Memorial’s continued commitment to compassion, integrity and excellence has been recognized with a Gold Standard designation by Deloitte for its Best Managed Companies award for the fourth straight year.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing entrepreneurial companies for the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

“COVID-19 has required us to reinvent ways in which families can remember, honour and celebrate their loved ones. Being accorded a Gold Standard by Deloitte as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies speaks to our employees’ teamwork, perseverance and hard work during these unprecedented times,” said David Scanlan, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer at Arbor Memorial. “In addition, it’s a testament to the families who we are honoured to serve across Canada.”

The Gold Standard demonstrates that the wellbeing, development and growth of the Arbor Memorial team is the company’s top priority. “By placing our people first, our employees can support families through one of life’s most difficult times,” said Scanlan.

“The past year has posed numerous challenges for Canadian businesses and has touched each and every one in some form or another—including this year’s Best Managed winners,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the work they do each and every day. Their unwavering commitment to their people, and their adaptability amid a year of turmoil, has led them to this achievement and it mustn’t go unnoticed.”

With over 2,500 dedicated and highly-trained staff, Arbor has solidified itself as a standard-bearer in the industry. The family-owned company is committed to the families it serves by pursuing innovation and operational excellence, and recruiting, developing and retaining the best employees.
