meet the needs of its customers, and providing exceptional service.
“For Source Atlantic, being named a 2017 winner of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Source Atlantic. “We’ve put in place an amazing team with a great vision for the company.
Together with more than 420 employees in all our offices we’re bringing that vision to life and
it’s paying off.”

Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 19, 2017. On the same date, the
Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success
