CMHA Toronto is honoured to be one of 22 organizations from across Canada to receive the 2023 Nonprofit Employer of Choice Award. The award recognizes the positive workplace culture we have cultivated, characterized by inclusivity, collaboration, and genuine care for each other and our clients. 

“This award speaks volumes about our collective efforts and the incredible workplace we've built together at CMHA Toronto. This special recognition is a testament to our commitment to creating a workplace that prioritizes the well-being, growth, and satisfaction of our team members,” said Michael Anhorn, CMHA Toronto’s chief executive officer.

The Nonprofit Employer of Choice™ (NEOC) process offers Canadian non-profits a tool to measure and continuously improve their leadership attributes, HR practices, and employee satisfaction.  

“Post-pandemic, things are not status quo. The winning organizations continue to place their employees as their number one priority,” said Jeff Doran, president of CCEOC Inc., which administers the NEOC.  “All winning non-profits showed strong leadership qualities, particularly in the areas of building trust and respect, communication, and employee engagement.” 

Winners successfully completed the NEOC Organizational Profile and Employee Commitment Survey achieving a minimum overall score of 75 per cent to qualify for the award. CMHA Toronto was thrilled to receive an overall score of 84 per cent. 

As we celebrate this achievement, we also recognize that our journey does not end here. We remain steadfast in our commitment to continuous improvement and innovation, always seeking new ways to enhance the employee experience and better serve our community.
