Aviva Canada is one of the Best Workplaces Managed by Women and is also among the Best Workplaces for Women, according to Great Place to Work®.

The first list showcases the “remarkable progress” women are making in “ascending to top leadership roles” within Canadian businesses, Great Place to Work reports.

Aviva Canada is a leading property and casualty insurance. “Prioritizing our people’s well-being helps us to be there for our customers,” says CEO Tracy Garrad. “At Aviva, our culture emphasizes the importance of mental health and wellness.
