Sponsored by Deloitte and Touche, CIBC and the National Post, the program identifies Canadian businesses that have implemented best business practices across the organization.

"Recipients apply innovative best business practices, possess a tremendous passion for change management and motivate employees through significant investment in the attraction and retention of talent."
The 50 Best award is a national program, recognizing Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways.

"Receiving the award for the third consecutive year is a special honour considering the difficult times that continue to exist in our industry. Without the continuing commitment, dedication and outstanding performance of our team, we could not have earned this award," said Larry J. Keating, President and CEO, Keating Technologies Inc.
In order to make the 50 Best list, companies must pass an extensive and in-depth interview process that assesses and examines management practices.
