Yes, WA offers a competitive salary, health benefits and continuing education opportunities, like other firms but at WA we’re different.

  • The WA Team is engaged, energetic, and involved in the community.
  • We work hard for our clients to deliver projects that go beyond their expectations and have them coming back for more.
  • We are a team. We support each other to create success for everyone, which makes us stronger as a company.
  • Our Management/Ownership team is approachable and easily accessible.
  • We recognize our hard work with Friday afternoon socials, office-wide lunches, annual Family Day picnics, holiday parties, a comfortable work environment, and employee anniversary recognition, to name a few.
  • We value honesty, integrity, communication, leadership, and design excellence. We foster our values with an open-door policy (the only doors we have belong to our meeting rooms) and a hard working yet casual approach to our business.
  • We have a coordinated COVID-19 Office Safety Protocol to keep our staff and their families safe including flexibility around working from home and the office during this current pandemic.

 

We go beyond with our support of non-profit organizations and causes. We provide support annually to Drive for the Cure and the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation. We participate as a team in runs for a cause (ex. Scotiabank 5km) and provide sponsorship throughout the year to organizations within our industry.
