Stantec Dartmouth honoured with Game Changers award

Gala celebrates businesses supporting young professionals

Stantec’s Dartmouth team captured a Game Changers Award at a gala event hosted by Halifax Partnership on October 30. Stantec was honoured with the Experiential Learning Award (Large Business category). These awards recognize organizations and individuals in the Halifax and Nova Scotian business community who actively support young talent in Nova Scotia, and encourage young workers to remain in the province through co-ops, work terms, and professional networks.

“We are thrilled to receive a Game Changers award, and we’re proud to support young professionals in Nova Scotia,” says Mary Louise Bradford, HR consultant, Stantec. “At Stantec, our employees are our greatest asset; youth are the future and it is important to do our part to help them find meaningful employment in Nova Scotia.”

Over the past three years, Stantec’s Dartmouth office has supported 38 young professionals through work placements and co-op terms. Thirteen of these young workers went on to join Stantec full time. This year alone, nine students have completed work placements with Stantec. The company encourages students in work placements to have a workplace mentor, receive on-the-job training, work directly on-site or in the field, and to apply academic knowledge to real-life situations.

At Stantec, our promise is to design with community in mind,” says Hal Lewis, vice president, Atlantic Canada, with Stantec. “We recognize that mentoring and investing in young professionals helps to keep them here in our region, and that helps us all to build better communities.”

The Game Changers program, through the Halifax Partnership, is a private-sector driven initiative to keep young talent in Nova Scotia. The program partners with businesses and organizations in the province to hire young professionals, provide them with valuable work experience, and connect them with local professional networks and career opportunities.
