Maintaining their Great Place to Work® Certification since 2019, they also have been acknowledged with being on the list of Best Workplaces™ in Retail and Hospitality for the last 3 years, the organization is thrilled that they continued to receive positive feedback about working at Grand River Raceway.

“We are honoured to obtain Great Place to Work certified status for the fourth consecutive year,” says Rena Edmondson, HR Manager, Grand River Agricultural Society. “It is truly our incredible team that is to be recognized and celebrated!
