a diverse work environment

At SYSTRA, we want to be the signature team for transportation solutions. This is our ambition. And we want each woman and man at SYSTRA to contribute fully to this ambition with their own signature.

We have a culture that embraces and promotes a diverse work environment that respects and values our differences in terms of gender identity and expression, race, skin color, sexual orientation, age, ethnic or national origin, sex, political conviction, religion, marital status, language, or disability. SYSTRA Canada aims to empower all employees to feel comfortable in sharing ideas, feeling involved and creating a supportive environment.

At SYSTRA Canada, ensuring an attractive work environment for our employees is something that we take seriously. The relationship of trust with and between employees is crucial and depends especially on the importance that we place on diversity, equity and inclusion within the company, access to training and opportunities for development.

A comprehensive set of policies and practices related to anti-discrimination, equal opportunity employment, and employment equity, were put in place to reinforce the right of employees to work in a safe and welcoming workplace.
