The Westcan Personnel Community


Westcan Personnel and its principals believe that Canada is the best country in the world. What sets Canadian society apart is how well we collectively treat each other and how we take care of all members of Society. Westcan Personnel does its best to take an active approach to this. Westcan Personnel is the only Caregiver Agency in Canada to have a published Ethical, Environmental, and Social Responsibility framework. The framework guides us every day in what we do and we believe it makes us a better corporate citizen. Westcan Personnel is a Carbon Neutral company.

Ethical Framework

Westcan Personnel operates in Canada according to an ethics based approach to business. We treat all our employees, partners, clients, and Caregivers with dignity and respect in everything we do. We have a workplace that is free from discrimination and harassment of any sort. We diligently abide by Canadian and foreign laws in all aspects of our business. We look past the legal minimum compliance threshold in any situation to what is the best and right thing to do.

Environmental Framework

Westcan Personnel is an environmentally responsible company. We strive to make all routine office processes streamlined and paperless, we leverage technology whenever possible, and we limit our printing of paper to official government documents. For the printing that we have to do we offset it by purchasing Carbon Plus Credits from The Carbon Farmer. We use recognized carbon emission assessment tools at a detailed level to assess the scope of the Carbon footprint of our business. We use The Carbon Farmer to offset the Carbon footprint of our business.
