Egg Farmers of Canada’s commitment to continuous improvement and superior benefits make it an excellent place to work. Don’t just take our word for it; see what the National Capital Region’s Top Employers had to say about us when we won in 2016.
EFC is a not-for-profit organization helping hard-working Canadian farmers supply Canadians with fresh, local, high-quality eggs. Our staff is challenged, motivated, constantly learning, and most importantly, excited about the work they do.
We offer staff professional development, support for work-life realities and opportunities to support worthy initiatives. Our building is right downtown, has a gym, free underground parking and a rooftop patio. We share our great location, known as the Agricultural Campus, with the Dairy Farmers of Canada, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture and the Canadian Hatching Egg Producers.
What we do
From our head office in Ottawa, we manage the national egg supply and promote the benefits of eating eggs while representing the interests of over 1,000 regulated egg farmers in all ten provinces and the Northwest Territories. We also:
- Administer our national on-farm programs
- Carry out government and media relations
- Run national marketing and nutrition programs
- Fulfill our commitment to research
- Manage our national Industrial Products Program
We offer a fair and competitive compensation package that rewards our employees for their contributions, plus:
- A full kitchen with ample eating room
- Rooftop patio
- Fully-equipped fitness room
- Free underground parking
- Showers and bike racks
- Opportunities for staff to improve their skills through professional development programs
- Employee social events
We also celebrate and recognize staff achievements with our Good Egg Award (awarded to an employee who displays the qualities that are admired most in the work environment) and a Get Cracking Award (awarded to an employee that displays a high level of community involvement), as well as our service awards.
We are committed to supporting causes that matter to our employees and to Canadians. Through donations, sponsorships and the volunteer spirit of our employees, we are making a difference across the country. We are committed to national causes including Breakfast Club of Canada and Food Banks Canada, in addition to a diverse range of community organizations, such as the Ottawa Mission, the Ottawa Food Bank and the local Snowsuit Fund.
Staff conference day
Once a year, we host our Staff Conference Day where we review the upcoming business plan. It is a day to step back, and it gives us an opportunity to celebrate our achievements and gear up for the year ahead. We strengthen our bond as a team by volunteering some time during the day toward one of our many community partner organizations.
