Mortgage Industry Employer of Choice

“We are very proud of our accomplishment, and we will continue to be the best employer that we can” – Heather Wytinck, CWB Optimum Mortgage


From employee development and training to benefits, CWB Optimum Mortgage ensures that its workplace is one employees want to come to every day. Optimum, which started as a two-person operation, now has 100-plus employees across Canada and manages a portfolio worth more than $2 billion. Developing employees has been the company’s number-one priority.

“We wholeheartedly support lifelong learning,” says Lester Shore, Optimum’s senior vice-president and regional general manager. “It makes for better career paths and more diverse and experienced teams.”

Employee recognition awards, 100% company-funded benefits, social events and a commitment to philanthropy are some of the other ways Optimum helps its employees thrive.

“We are so proud to be considered for the Employer of Choice category for the Canadian Mortgage Awards,” Shore says. “We strongly believe we are the place to work in the mortgage industry, and our employees would echo those same sentiments.”
