Statement of Commitment
Dana’s brand belief, “To transform the food service experience, every day”, extends to not only the food we serve, but also to our interactions with our guests, clients, contractors, employees, and other individuals who may come into contact with our services or offerings. We aim to not only create great meals, but to have an experience that is highlighted and driven by respect, accommodation, and attentiveness.
Dana takes pride in striving for equality in the workplace. Equality can be described as providing equal opportunity to every individual, while recognizing that historically certain groups or individuals have experienced a form of discrimination. The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (2005) (“AODA”) provides a frame work for the steps needed to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities. We are committed to meeting the needs of all individuals who have a relationship, or interaction, with Dana, and taking steps to continually improve our services and interactions, not only in Ontario, but also across Canada where we operate.

“I joined Dana Hospitality in 2014 as a Recruitment Coordinator. I have seen my role grow and evolve leaving a meaningful impact on the company. The head office team is very supportive and encourages new ideas or projects that can help push us forward. I’ve had the opportunity to develop new systems, create and deliver training programs, and develop different policies to support our continued growth.

Linda – Food Services Director
“…I love my company. It strives to give it their best. Not everyone can say they love and have great pride in the company they have work for during the past 6 ½ years. But, I can. During the pandemic, they kept us safe and continuously communicated and supported us. The exhilarating satisfaction working alongside my team in the kitchen was calming, yet rewarding and provided a sense of accomplishment that thrust me from the gloom of pandemic. The praise and feedback from our guests pertaining to the café remaining open, with delicious meals, and quality service was more than enough positive reinforcements to out-weigh the challenges in the world around us…”
