The Appeals Commission entered the 2019 Canada's Top 100 Employers national competition, which recognizes the best places in Canada to work. The Appeals Commission has recently been selected as one of Alberta's Top 75 Employers based on these reasons.
Alberta's Top 75 Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. The editors evaluate employers based on the same criteria as the national competition: physical workplace, work atmosphere and social, health, financial, and family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, training and skills development, and community involvement.
The Appeals Commission has updated its Code of Conduct with the approval of Alberta's Ethics Commissioner. We are making the Code public in advance of its effective date of March 1st, 2019. If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
