Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores) has been named a Greater Toronto Area (GTA) Top Employer for the eighth straight year.

Following a competition that evaluated workplace, work atmosphere, health, financial and family benefits, vacation, employee communications, performance management, training and skills development and community involvement, Ontario Shores was recognized as a GTA Top Employer for 2024.

Karim Mamdani, President and CEO, expressed his excitement and appreciation, sharing, “we are grateful for the continued recognition.  Our staff focus on our patients’ recovery journey and we focus on the wellbeing, engagement and resilience of our staff.  Being recognized for this noteable distinction assures us that we are on the right path.  We strive to create a diverse and inclusive workplace, where staff have an opportunity to learn and grow.”

This year’s GTA Top Employer evaluation highlights our microcredential partnership with Ontario Tech Talent and showcases our commitment to employee training and development.  This suite of mental health focused microcredentials builds skill and competency in our workforce and fills critical knowledge gaps.  Ontario Shores’ clinical and nursing staff can complete these competency-based microcredentials free of charge to learn in demand and emergent healthcare skills.  Buidling competency in these key skills is essential to providing patient-centred care.

The evaluation also noted Ontario Shores’ commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion demonstrated through ongoing employee education, staff events, inclusive vendor markets and celebrations.  

Ontario Shores and its fellow recipients were officially unveiled in a special magazine in Globe and Mail.
