DCC celebrated outstanding achievements by its employees at the National Awards ceremony in Ottawa on April 30, 2019. The annual awards recognize the dedication and commitment of DCC staff across the country in support of DCC's Client-Partners and the Government of Canada.

"The outstanding achievements of our award winners recognized today would not be possible without the energy and commitment of all employees," said James Paul, President and CEO, in his opening remarks. "It's the spirit and commitment of all DCC employees that make DCC such an exceptional place to work."

Likewise, DCC Board member Angus Watt expressed his thanks to DCC employees for being the source of DCC's success in infrastructure delivery, that contributes to many positive benefits for Canada's economy, a sustainable environment, and an open and transparent government.
