September 30th - National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

Day enToromont will support the National Day for Truth and reconciliation encouraging our employees to reflect on what the day stands for.

The National Day for Truth and Reconciliation seeks to honour First Nations, Inuit and Métis survivors, their families and communities, and to ensure that public commemoration of their history and the legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process. The establishment of the national holiday is in response to the 80th call to action in the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada.

Toromont is Dedicated to Creating a Richly Diverse Workforce!

Diversity is an integral part of the chemistry of our team here at Toromont.  It allows us to build teams that are capable of producing innovative and creative ideas and solutions for Toromont and our clients.  Diversity allows us to welcome different perspectives, lead better decision-making and problem solve in ways a homogenous work environment would not cultivate.  Through Diversity, we can improve our performance and propel Toromont forward into the future!

Toromont continues to be committed to creating an inclusive environment, thus promoting Indigenous training and development in support of our industry and workforce, and remaining open as a Partner in our communities to providing employment opportunities.

Toromont is proud of its various partnerships with the Indigenous communities here in Canada, as they have allowed us as an employer to ensure that community members have equal opportunities within our industry.  Here are just some of the active initiatives we are currently involved in:

  • Toromont is actively participating on a committee to help shape Indigenous Hiring Policy and Retention Strategies for Northeastern Ontario
  • Toromont is collaborating to support Indigenous Women in Training and Skills DevelopmentKeepers of the Circle, is an Indigenous Hub operated by the Temiskaming Native Women’s Support Group in Northeastern Ontario. 
  • Toromont was the key partner to the “Stay North” initiative.  This marketing and recruiting event put an emphasis on aboriginal communities
  •  Toromont has multiple long-standing constructive and mutually beneficial business relationships with several First Nations communities, spanning over several decades, across Eastern Canada.  These business relationships have supported  Indigenous communities with training, hiring, and community investments across our territories.
  • Our THINK BIG Apprenticeship scholarships are also valuable tools to elevate diversity across our team and attract great talent, with a goal of awarding two scholarships per year to qualified indigenous candidates.

Toromont will remain committed to creating an environment where we support the development of all our employees, embrace our differences and build a stronger tomorrow together!  Let’s all take a moment on September 30th to learn a bit more about the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and do our part to join in the reconciliation process.
