LDB recognized as one of B.C.’s Top Employers for the 14th time


BURNABY – The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) continues its record as one of B.C.’s top employers. 2022 marks the 14th straight year that the LDB, the sole wholesale distributor and public retailer of liquor and non-medical cannabis in B.C., has been named to the list.  


 B.C.'s Top Employers, a designation started by Canada's Top 100 Employers project in 2005, recognizes industry-leading employers that create exceptional places to work. Its list is shared in the Vancouver Sun annually.  


 “I am very proud the LDB has, once again, ranked among the best for progressive and forward-thinking employee programs,” said Blain Lawson, General Manager and CEO of the LDB. “I am incredibly grateful for the level of dedication and resilience our staff have demonstrated in the face of recent crises. The efforts of our employees is just one example of what makes the LDB a great place to work.” 


 The LDB employs nearly 5,600people in communities throughout the province at its three distribution centres, 198 BCLIQUOR stores, 33 BC Cannabis Stores, and its corporate head office. It contributes over $1 billion annually to the Province of B.C., providing funding for vital public services like health care and education.  


 Canada’s Top 100 Employers project evaluates eligible employers using a range of criteria and scores in: physical workplace; work and social atmosphere; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.
