CIHI has been recognized as one of the National Capital Region’s Top Employers for 2019.

This special designation recognizes the employers in the Ottawa–Gatineau metropolitan area that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. The annual editorial competition, which forms part of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, identifies those employers that lead in attracting and retaining employees.

CIHI’s 708 full-time staff across Canada collectively participated in 9,800 hours of employee training last year.

David O’Toole, CIHI’s president and CEO, said it’s essential to support employees in continuous learning and development, whether it’s a formal course, personal development or exposure to other organizations.

“The folks at CIHI are some of the most highly skilled and dedicated I’ve ever worked with,” said O’Toole. “Nobody comes to work wondering how they’re going to spend their day.”
