Executive quote

“We are pleased to see that CIRA has once again been recognized as a top employer in the National Capital Region. Our goal at CIRA is to build a trusted internet for Canadians, and we’ve worked hard to weave that into everything we do. Over the past year, the pandemic has shown us all that corporate culture is a lot more than free ping-pong tables and catered lunches. Instead, it has underscored the importance of a strong foundation built on a commitment to people, transparency and trust. Culture at CIRA is so much more than an HR initiative – it is something all employees own, and I couldn’t be prouder of how the team has lived its values over the past year and built resilience despite challenging circumstances.”
