Upper Canada Forest Products is proud to be recognized as a 2021 Best Managed Gold Standard Winner by the Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program for the quality and integrity of our management and resulting business performance.
The prestigious Deloitte program honours excellence in Canadian, privately-owned and managed companies. The award marks the fifth time in as many years that Upper Canada has won Best Managed status and our second year in a row winning the Gold Standard designation.
Upper Canada Forest Products is part of the UCS Forest Group of Companies, which includes Sierra Forest Products in the US, UCS Global internationally, and A&M Wood Speciality in Ontario. Upper Canada has been serving Canadian customers for 35 years, with facilities in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Edmonton, Calgary and Toronto.
We are extremely proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for a fifth consecutive year. Our culture of care is critical to our success and nurtured by our values —professionalism, integrity, commitment, innovation and sustainability,” said Warren Spitz, President and CEO of the UCS Forest Group of Companies. “Achieving the Best Managed Gold Standard award level speaks to our commitment to our people — a foundational commitment that began the day I started Upper Canada 35 years ago. As we always say, ‘None of us has the all the answers, but together we do.’ This company is a team and a family, which is how we are continually Delivering the Difference.”
Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for the Canada’s Best Managed Companies Award in a rigorous and independent process. The 2021 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies Award are being honoured at virtual events, culminating in a Gala on May 6th, 2021.
