Ontario Job Opportunity Information Network recently awarded Exhibition Place with the “Employer of the Year Award” for its commitment to hiring staff from the Spinal Cord Injury of Ontario.
The award was presented at the annual Fall Employer Conference lunch and award ceremony on Nov. 15 at the Westin Harbour Castle.
“Exhibition Place hires staff on a casual basis for events such as CNE and Royal Agricultural Winter Fair,” said Richard McCallum, Spinal Cord Injury Ontario. “They have been very accommodating towards the needs of our job seekers by providing them with positions that are suited to their needs and schedules. They are an employer of choice, and each of the job seekers is looking forward to returning next year.”
Mark Grimes, chair of the board of governors, Exhibition Place, said that he was proud that Exhibition Place had been recognized by JOIN and commended staff for their leadership.
Committed to employment equity, Exhibition Place provides accommodations through all parts of the hiring process as required under the Employment Accommodation policy, and encourages applications from people with disabilities for all positions.
