Work Smart. Work Flexible. Work

Work / Life balance has never been more important. That’s why DSEL is transitioning to the 36 hour standard work week.

MyFlex-36 offers each employee the flexibility to structure their professional hours to suit their personal needs. For some, that means working 36 hours over four days (long weekend!). For others, five days working around fixed childcare and school schedules.

Consider your needs, coordinate with your team, and flex your hours.

YOUR TIME. YOUR WAY.

Balancing Work
with Play

We recognize the value of play. From game nights, a trip to Manhattan, to our infamous tomato growing and gingerbread house contests, At DSEL you build friendships.

DSEL & Remote

Same innovation... but now from anywhere.

With our state-of-the-art technology, DSEL transitioned seamlessly into the new reality of remote work.

Work

Remote work is an attractive option for many to meet their personal needs, locational challenges or healthy living objectives. The office setting is also attractive for those who prefer a comfortable, social and collaborative environment.

Today, employees can choose whether to work from our modern, spacious offices in Markham and Ottawa, or remotely from the convenience of their homes.  Either way, every individual at DSEL remains highly connected to retain a strong team dynamic and allow for the effective design and construction of the largest and most complex subdivision projects.

Health & Wellness

Our offices are well equipped to meet the best practices recommended by the government health agencies. For remote workers, DSEL is committed to supporting their work and career development through frequent, personalized check-ins.

Culture

DSEL is committed to a positive company culture, now more than ever.  Our culture has been adapted to accommodate social distancing and remote participation. We go the distance to celebrate milestones and create social interactions to indulge the creative and playful aspects of our teams.

Sustainability

The best subdivisions sustain, restore and positively engage with the environment.

DSEL doesn’t just design subdivisions. Our work includes protecting and enhancing natural features while seamlessly integrating them into our communities for the benefit of the ecosystem and the enjoyment of local residents.

Environmental scientists, geomorphologists, hydrogeologists, biologists, landscape architects and environmental agencies collaborate in our efforts to:

  • Protect significant trees, woodlots, natural heritage systems and the lifeforms that inhabit them.
  • Restore natural channel systems and ponds to integrate with the local landscape.
  • Protect local aquatic, terrestrial, and vegetative species at risk.
  • Promote healthy fish spawning and feeding.
  • Provide strategically located raptor poles for birds of prey.
  • Create culvert crossings that permit fish and wildlife passage.
  • Encourage natural infiltration and evapotranspiration of rainwater with LID (Low Impact Development) infiltration trenches and galleries
