We have achieved many awards over the years, some of which include the “Employers of Choice” award through the Hotel and Lodging Association since 2014 – we treat our employees like family. The hotel associate of Canada “Green Key eco-rating award” earning 4 out of 5 gold keys is another award we have achieved, ensuring to do our part in reducing, reusing and recycling. We have been a “housekeeping award” recipient since 1989 along with achieving our level 3 in the Hotel and Lodging Associations “Health and Safety” program.

Also, you will become a more team oriented person – hopefully with good team spirit while working towards a common goal – to name a few.
