As a food and beverage company, our work has never been more important than it is right now as we play a critical role in delivering the products that Canadians depend on. During Covid-19, we are looking for new team members to join our existing dedicated employees.

The health and safety of our employees, our consumers and our partners has always been our highest priority and never more so than during this challenging time. In addition to our normal strict standards, we have taken significant measures to enhance the safety and hygiene across all our operations to help protect our employees and have applied social distancing across all our facilities, production lines and distribution centres.

As Canada’s leading bottled water company, we sell both the leading domestic natural spring water brand - Nestlé Pure Life - and the leading international natural spring water/mineral water brands - Acqua Panna, Perrier and S. Pellegrino. More than half of all domestic spring water products sold in Canada are produced by Nestlé Waters Canada and almost three-quarters of international water brands sold in Canada are marketed by Nestlé Waters Canada.
