Safety and Satisfaction...
     Our Commitment to
         Those We Serve


At East Coast Catering Limited we recognize and value individuality and diversity amongst our employees and those whom we serve.

We believe that to be successful in the marketplace, we must employ the best-qualified person for each position while promoting diversity within our workforce. We therefore encourage and facilitate employment of qualified women and minorities at all levels of the organization.

Consistent with the objectives of our aboriginal partnerships, we have been successful in training and employing a large number of Innu, Inuit and Metis at our work sites in Labrador. To prepare for the development phase of the Voisey’s Bay Nickel Project, we worked with the local public college and Innu communities to develop and deliver training programs which resulted in over 200 aboriginal employees working as housekeepers, kitchen attendants and cooks, serving a resident workforce that reached 1,100 persons. During the operations phase of the Voisey’s Bay project, we continue to employ over 90% aboriginal employees, maintaining our commitment to the people of Labrador’s aboriginal communities.

At several of our offshore workplaces, we consistently employ the highest percentage of women amongst all contractors. We have also facilitated modified work duties to allow employment of individuals with physical disabilities.

We have promoted women, including aboriginal women, to supervisory positions at several of our workplaces.

We are proud of our achievements in promoting diversity in our workplaces and are fully committed to the win-win opportunities that diversity creates in the workplace.

Diversity in our workplaces also presents challenges with respect to the dietary wishes of workplace residents. We recognize the ethnic and cultural differences found in the foods that different groups typically eat. We strive to develop menus that offer sufficient choice to meet the diverse expectations of our residents.
