Recognized as one of Atlantic Canada's Top Employers (2021) and Nova Scotia's Top Employers (2021):

Here are some of the reasons why FBM Architecture | Interior Design was selected as one of Atlantic Canada's Top Employers (2021) and Nova Scotia's Top Employers (2021):

  • FBM Architecture recently introduced a maternity and parental leave top-up policy, offering new parents (including adoptive) up to 95 per cent of salary for up to five weeks, followed by 70 per cent of salary for an additional five weeks
  • As part of FBM Architecture's health benefits plan, employees receive separate health and wellness spending accounts, allowing them to exercise a little flexibility in determining their coverage ($250 and $300 respectively)
  • FBM Architecture cultivates an ownership culture through a share purchase plan, available to all employees, and also encourages long-term savings through a matching RSP program
