McDougall Energy, one of Canada’s best managed companies!

For the eighth straight year, McDougall Energy has been recognized as one of Canada’s best-managed companies.

Now in its third generation of family ownership, McDougall Energy has grown to become one of the largest distributors of Esso and Mobil products in Canada. The 70-year-old energy company, which is based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., operates in various regions across Canada serving business, residential and retail automotive customers. McDougall Energy continues to expand its business through acquisitions and organic growth initiatives with strategic partners across Canada.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian owned and managed companies. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.

Winners of the 2019 Canada’s Best Managed Companies Award will be honoured in Toronto on April 16, 2019 with a Symposium featuring presentations from some of Canada’s Business Leaders, and on April 17, 2019 at the Annual Awards Gala Dinner and Ceremony.

“It’s an honour to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. This is a well-respected award with a rigorous application process, so we consider it a great accomplishment, particularly in requalifying for the eighth consecutive year.

“We try to ensure that employees understand the significance of the achievement and that they are the driving force behind it.  It serves as validation and recognition for all of our employees’ hard work and dedication which we believe supports greater employee satisfaction.  Being recognized publicly and nationally for a job well done, is a great compliment to our employees.”
