Congratulations to our Founder and CEO, Patrick Dovigi, who has been named the Waterstone Human Capital 2022 Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO in the Enterprise category.

The most admired CEO acknowledgement recognizes a select group of distinguished CEOs for outstanding career achievements, with specific focus on those who have successfully created an organizational culture that promotes superior performance and maintains a competitive edge. Awardees are chosen by the Canada’s Most Admired™ CEO Board of Governors, which comprises past winners and prominent leaders. 

Since he founded GFL in 2007, Patrick has instilled a deeply entrepreneurial and innovative culture at GFL.

Patrick credits GFL’s success to all of our employees. This award is recognition that the contribution of each and every employee at GFL matters in making GFL a great company and a great place to work.
