2019 Community Feature: Old Dutch

Old Dutch first started in Winnipeg, Manitoba as a little chip company with a lot of heart. Soon, our tradition of making and delivering great-tasting snacks spread throughout all of Canada. Since 1954, our windmill has stood for quality and trust, old world charm, and a desire to create a long-lasting chip and snack tradition.

Old Dutch makes great snacks. With this comes a social responsibility, which we take very seriously. We provide snacks with quality ingredients, and we encourage physical health through sports, active lifestyles and community events.

For over 60 years, we at Old Dutch, have been a consistent leader in community support. So, whether it’s encouraging team sports, or individual activity, our message is simple. Old Dutch believes in tradition, innovation, and great-tasting snacks—and an active, balanced lifestyle to go with them.

Ask anyone in Western Canada if they remember eating Old Dutch chips when they were little. They all remember—the Old Dutch windmill, the great-tasting chips and dips, the colourful characters on the bags, the Old Dutch taste they enjoyed growing up.

2019 Community Feature: Manitoba Hydro

We’ve been a proud sponsor of the Pride Winnipeg Festival for the past six years and we’re back in 2019.

Our support of the festival and participation of our employees fits in with one of our foundation principles—respect for each other — and our commitment to equality and inclusion.

Our involvement also reflects the growing popularity of the festival and the increased participation of Manitobans.

We’ve consistently been named one of Canada’s Best Diversity Employers—recognition that we’ve created inclusive workplaces for employees from five diverse groups: Women; visible minorities; persons with disabilities; Indigenous peoples; and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and two-spirit (LGBT2S) peoples.

We also strive to develop and retain a highly skilled and motivated workforce that reflects the demographics of Manitoba. From Indigenous pre-placement training programs to the Project Search Program that helps high school students with intellectual disabilities find meaningful employment, Manitoba Hydro is a leader in developing diversity programming.

We look forward to the 32nd Annual Pride Parade festival!
