Employees at buffet celebrating cultural diversity.

Cultural Diversity

Following its launch in the summer, the Multicultural Advocacy Network (Multi-CAN) hosted a growing series of events, with hundreds of employees, dedicated to supporting and celebrating cultural diversity.

Multi-CAN, a newly created Employee Resource Group in 2019 focused on educating, supporting and celebrating our amazing diversity at Maple Leaf Foods, has hosted a number of events throughout 2019. The Multi-CAN team hosted a lunch with over 15 different meal items serving over 450 of our employees.

Multi-CAN also launched a series of talks titled “Ask Me Anything,” where a Maple Leaf Foods employee shares their culture and answers questions from the audience allowing everyone to get to know a culture on a deeper level. In 2019, we learned about the cultures of the Philippines and Mexico.
