Suncor Energy recognized as one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers

Toronto, Ontario (April 3, 2008) — Suncor Energy Inc. was among 25 Canadian companies to be recognized on the inaugural list of Canada's Best Diversity Employers. This award was launched to recognize companies and organizations that lead the nation in creating diverse and inclusive workplaces and to encourage other companies across Canada to adopt similar best practices.

"These employers represent the best face of Canada's cultural and social mosaic," said Richard Yerema, editor of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project, which managed the selection process. "This year's list shows that, regardless of your industry or region, progressive employers are embracing Canada's diversity and turning it into a valuable asset for their organizations."

Suncor was cited for its efforts to attract more women to management roles in the oil and gas industry, for establishing an Aboriginal affairs department and for providing cultural diversity training to employees.
