TORONTO, ON (May 27, 2021) – For the 15th year in a row, Bayshore HealthCare has earned inclusion on Deloitte’s list of the Best Managed Companies in Canada. Bayshore also received the highest designation, Platinum status, for the ninth consecutive year. The Best Managed designation recognizes Canadian-owned and managed businesses for their demonstration of strategy, capability and commitment to achieving sustainable growth.

“The real key to our success is Bayshore’s hard-working employees who, from coast to coast, demonstrate a caring and compassionate attitude and whose goal is to make a real difference in the lives of people we serve,” said Stuart Cottrelle, President of Bayshore HealthCare. “I am proud to say that this has been our collective goal for over 50 years and never more critical to Canadians than during this very tough year, for all of us.”

Applicants to the Best Managed program are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies and cross-functional collaboration throughout the organization. The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business and TMX Group.

“The past year has posed numerous challenges for Canadian businesses and has touched each and every one in some form or another—including this year’s Best Managed winners,” says Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the work they do each and every day. Their unwavering commitment to their people, and their adaptability amid a year of turmoil, has led them to this achievement and it mustn’t go unnoticed.”
