FCT Recognized for 2015 Best Workplaces in Canada

FCT Recognized by the Great Place to Work® Institute as One of the Top 50 Best Workplaces in Canada

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO, April 13, 2015 – It’s official, the Great Place to Work® Institute (GPTW) has announced its 2015 Best Workplaces in Canada and FCT is the first title insurance company to make the list!

FCT has been recognized as one of the “Best Workplaces In Canada” under the Large and Multinational category because of its commitment to building an environment where employees have the opportunity to be great. FCT’s employee benefits and recognition programs along with its dedication to communities across Canada are just some of the ways we demonstrate that commitment.

“I am very proud of this achievement. But what I’m most proud of is what this award represents – the endorsement of our employees that we are one of Canada’s Best Workplaces,” said Michael LeBlanc, Chief Executive Officer, FCT. “Creating one of the best workplaces in Canada starts with its employees. And FCT recognizes that to keep the best, we have to be the best—so, we strive to create an environment that makes people feel engaged, appreciated and motivated to succeed.”

In addition to this award, FCT, in conjunction with the FCT Charitable Foundation, was recognized in March for its dedication to the Oakville community by receiving the Genworth Community Builder of the Year Award at the Annual Oakville Awards for Business Excellence (OABE). Hosted by the Oakville Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Rotary Club of Oakville West, the awards celebrate the significant contribution local businesses make to the outstanding quality of life enjoyed in Oakville.
