Corporate Social Responsibility

At Carmanah, we don’t just make lofty statements about making the world a better place, we set ambitious goals—and meet them. Whether that’s making our office 99.7% waste-free through our extensive and easy-to-use recycling program or decreasing emissions by encouraging staff to walk and bike to work, choosing virtual meetings versus travel and by donating a portion of our profits to organizations whose work we support and admire, we’re proud to hold ourselves accountable and give back wherever we can.

Our team’s challenge of creating a highly efficient electronics design integrated with mechanical and firmware requirements often results in interesting ideas and discussions. We thrive on coming up with innovative solutions to the problems we encounter. Throw in keeping product costs as low as possible while keeping the design manufacturable, and my days are always interesting.

Co-ops at Carmanah

Carmanah has hired co-op students for positions throughout the business, including sales, marketing, product development, and more. We integrate all students into our world, where they learn all about our business and tackle real-life problems and solutions. While we push students to improve, we value their fresh eyes and ideas. Several co-op students have gone on to become full-time employees. We are very proud of all the co-ops that have joined Carmanah and believe this program is integral to carrying our business forward.

In this coop, I was able to dive into topics that I never thought I would be given the opportunity to learn. I also learned that I enjoy the aspect of having a smaller, tight-knit team. They are a group of driven individuals who are passionate about their goals and although focused, the team also had a good balance of work and social time with lots of interaction throughout the day.

I would like to acknowledge Carmanah Technologies for providing an enriching and innovative environment during my coop as well as giving coop students the opportunity to develop new skills and build professional mannerisms.
