Mississauga, Ontario, Canada, May 10, 2022 – For the sixth consecutive year, Woodbridge has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by the Best Managed program for private organizations and maintained its Gold Standard status for the third year.

“Being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies and sustaining our Gold Standard status for three years is a credit to all our hardworking Teammates for their commitment and dedication to ‘The Woodbridge Way,’” said Guillaume Lavoie, Senior Vice President & CFO, Woodbridge. “Recognizing it has been a challenging year for many around the world, Woodbridge was selected because of our agile business strategy, proven year-over-year success, making significant advancements in developing sustainable products, and progressing our ESG program.

The 2022 Best Managed companies share commonalities such as putting their people and culture at the forefront, as well as focusing on ESG strategies.

“Now in its 29th year, the Best Managed program seeks to recognize companies who combine strategic expertise and a culture of innovation with a steadfast commitment to their communities,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s winners demonstrated an increased focus on ESG issues. They maintained an unwavering dedication to their core purpose, enhancing client relationships and cultivating a healthy corporate culture.”
