Vice-President, Health Management

"Cascades makes you feel proud to be part of their workforce. They don’t just say they care because it’s the latest catch phrase or the politically correct thing to do. They truly believe it, and they live by it. When you work for Cascades you become a family member. I am proud to be part of this family."
