Celebrating a decade as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

May 9, 2023

Waterloo, Ontario, May 9, 2023 – peopleCare Communities, a leader in the development and operation of vibrant senior living communities, is thrilled to be named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the tenth straight year. With this good news, we also maintain our Platinum status, a distinction exclusive to Canada’s leading organizations that have been Best Managed companies for seven years or more.

As a Canadian-owned and family operated business, this notable achievement is thanks in large part to peopleCare’s exceptional employees, who are the foundation for a strategic and thriving organization that holds itself to the highest standards.

“Being named a Best Managed company for 10 years running reflects the commitment to leadership, innovation and excellence that has defined peopleCare for over 50 years,” says Chairman and CEO Brent Gingerich. “We thank Deloitte and its partners for acknowledging leading organizations like peopleCare, who strive to exceed the expectations of our residents and families and make a difference in our communities.”

As a Best Managed Company in 2023, peopleCare is recognized for sustained growth, performance and industry leadership – notable as a positive disruptor with the entrepreneurial spirit and track record of social impact needed to change the world of senior living.

Along with meeting the growing needs of Ontario’s aging population through numerous integrated senior living developments and innovative partnerships and research, peopleCare’s President Megan Allen-Lamb believes the organization also stands out for fostering an engaged workforce that goes above and beyond to live our peopleCare values, while delivering high-quality, person-centred care.

“Building a collaborative and supportive workplace culture that brings out the best in our teams is a top priority,” says Allen-Lamb. “It’s key to help us connect everyone to our purpose and empower them to come to work every single day with a focus on creating meaningful experiences for our residents.”
