An incredible team
I love working at CanWel because every day brings a new challenge. But what really makes CanWel a great place to work is the team. My role leads me to work with each of our locations and it’s obvious that all the people who work at CanWel are passionate, dedicated, and that they’re all working towards the same goal, which is to ensure that the company performs year after year.

CanWel has very good benefits that you may not find while working for other companies. As a mother with two children, the benefits were very important to me and my ability to support my family. I have travelled to many of our offices across the country and everyone is really kind and approachable, even when working with the higher level executives. CanWel is a company moving at a fast pace to stay on top with current technologies. Their investment in people and technology helps ensure that staff have the best tools to keep the business moving forward.

A great first two weeks
I have just joined CanWel and so far it has been great. Everyone is friendly and very willing to teach and provide guidance. The office culture is good, everyone seems to have fun while still getting the job done. There are some great benefits, a fitness subsidy, a transit subsidy and social events inside the office as well as great opportunities to attend concerts and games outside the office. In my first 2 weeks I was lucky enough to attend a Canucks game!
