Irreconcilable realities? – Brantford Expositor

Irreconcilable realities?

Posted By LISA VANEVERY

Land has been a contentious issue for dispute between peoples throughout history. What makes this dispute about the land in the Haldimand Tract different are two separate landview perspectives, one rising from a culture based on interconnectedness and the other from a culture based on legalistic principles. This gap in thought is wide and has existed since the day we met.

Canada’s top 100 employers
The best companies to work for in Canada and why you’ll want to work for one of them

National Post
Published: Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Although a company might be a great employer, it doesn’t necessarily mean it will make The Top 100 Employers list or regional lists. More than 2,100 companies applied to be part of the lists this year. Most of them were among the 16,000 or so organizations — in both the public and private sectors — that publishing firm Mediacorp Canada Inc. invited to participate. The applicant provides information related to eight key criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere as a social setting; pay and benefits; vacation and provisions for time off; communication to employees; performance management; training and skills development and community involvement. Applicants are assigned grades for each category, and they are then compared with others in their industry to determine whether they make the national or regional cuts. The scores are not published in the final lists, and the top employers are not ranked in any particular order.
