Supporting the community and provinces in which we live and operate is so important to us. Being a large employer in a rural area makes us dependent on the local and area communities to staff our operations both full time and seasonally. Assisting in making our communities stronger and preferred places to live requires company and employee commitment....and we certainly have both.
The company, employees and the Bragg family have been long time supporters of the IWK Childrens Hospital in Halifax.
As a company we support local organizations and initiatives through funding and participation and encourage our employees to participate as well. We are proud to announce that the company, employees and Bragg Family have received awards for this commitment to our communities.
