Impacting and improving lives

Our services impact and improve residents’ lives every day. Here are some of their stories:

We've built a healthy workplace program that’s based on the National Quality Institute (NQI) and Health Canada model.

Psychological health and safety

We’ve committed to our employees’ well-being through a positive workplace culture and a psychologically healthy and safe workplace.

We embrace the National Standard of Canada for Psychological Health and Safety in the Workplace released by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA Group) and the Mental Health Commission of Canada, which is made up of 13 workplace factors.

This standard is the foundation of our ‘Me, We, Us’ workplace psychological health and safety strategy.

Education and development

We offer programs and courses in leadership development, employee development, occupational health and safety, and wellness. We also offer a comprehensive catalogue of online training.

Career planning

We work with employees to develop career paths and the necessary education and training plans.

Performance Management Program

Our Performance Management Program focusses on open discussion and feedback, goal setting, professional development, and career management for non-bargaining employees.

Leadership Development Program

Supervisory and management-level employees can attend an in-depth Leadership Development Program. Similar courses are available to employees who want to become supervisors.

Tuition assistance

Employees can apply for reimbursement of tuition or registration fees for job-related courses leading to a degree, diploma, certificate, or professional designation, up to a maximum of $2,000 per calendar year.

Employee development days

We hold regular employee development days focussing on a topic or theme that offers team learning and enrichment opportunities.

Advancement opportunities

Employees can apply for any available positions posted on our internal career site. We’re committed to giving our employees full consideration before recruiting from outside of our organization.

Pay for performance

Employees in non-bargaining positions receive annual performance appraisals and are eligible for increases based on the level of their performance the previous year.

Competitive compensation

We offer an attractive, competitive, and comparable compensation program.

Exceptional benefits

We offer wellness benefits, life insurance, dental, extended health benefits, and paramedicals. Non-bargaining employees also receive a Health Spending Account of up to $1,000 per year to offset approved medical and dental expenses not covered by the plan.

Paid holidays

In addition to the statutory holidays and the Civic Holiday, we provide 3 additional “float" days off with pay. This generally allows us to close some of our offices for the 3 business days before New Year’s Day.

Ontario Municipal Employees Retirement System (OMERS)

Our employees are enrolled in the OMERS pension contribution plan that matches payroll deduction contributions.

Early retiree benefits

We offer a range of benefits to eligible employees who take early retirement. These benefits can continue from the time they retire until age 65.

Employee and Family Assistance Program

Our employees and their eligible family members can access confidential professional counselling and a free 24/7 referral service.

Work and life balance are important, so we provide an inclusive, vibrant organizational culture and flexible ways of working that support health and well-being.

Through our flexible workplace practices, we’ve re-defined 'how' employees work.

Depending on the role, we offer flexible hours and 3 different ways to work: remotely, onsite, or a hybrid of both. Each work mode depends on the role and its operational requirements.

These work modes let you manage and combine personal and professional responsibilities while meeting operational requirements and customer service expectations.

We strive to develop a workplace that:

  • Values and respects diversity.
  • Practices inclusion.
  • Recognizes everyone’s unique contributions and abilities.
  • Facilitates innovative thinking to ensure our programs and services address the diverse needs of Peel’s community and workforce.

Our employee surveys, organizational events, and learning and development opportunities are just some of the ways we’re working to become a more diverse, equitable, accessible, and inclusive workplace.

We're committed to working with residents to deliver programs and services that are not only inclusive and equitable, but also reflect our communities.
