Vision Day 2022: Celebrating Canada’s Best Managed Companies Award

Last month, Tri-Mach Group (TMG) was honoured to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. Achieving this award is a testament to the passion, effort, and creativity each of our team members demonstrates each day. We chose to reveal and celebrate the winning of this award at our annual Vision Day, where each company within TMG comes together to align our strategy.


The day began with an in-person townhall, consisting of over 300 team members from all three companies, gathering at the Waterloo Memorial Recreation Complex. During our townhall TMG’s leadership team spoke about all our company updates and our 2022 strategy going forward. We had special guests from Deloitte and CIBC, alongside our CEO Krystal Darling, share the news with our entire company that TMG is officially one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

Hockey Tournament

Following the townhall, all employees, family, and friends were invited to participate or spectate a company-wide hockey game. Open concession was available for everyone in attendance. With over 50 players participating in the games, we held two back-to-back games with 4 separate teams. Custom printed jerseys featuring our hockey logo and the Best Managed logo were given to all players.

The games started with the singing of our national anthem, sung by one of our very own Sales Administrators, James Pasia, along with his choir mates. Over 100 TMG branded hand clappers were handed out to get the crowd started during warm-ups. The games included commentary from radio personality, Angie Hill, keeping the crowd engaged throughout. In between games, we held a ‘Chuck-A-Puck’ contest, with the three closest to center ice being given prizes.

The winning teams of both games were awarded the Tri-Mach Cup, a custom fabricated laser cut to hoist following their wins. Additionally, a custom fabricated laser-cut medal was given to the most spirited player and the most valuable player on each team.

Family Free Skate

After the TMG Cup games, we invited all employees, family, and friends to participate in a family skate around the rink. Family members of all ages hopped on the ice to skate around and show off their moves!

Our 2022 Vision Day was a great success in celebrating being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. We are grateful for our team of dedicated, talented, and hard-working employees who consistently go above and beyond. We are excited to see what the future brings for TMG!

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced that it will provide approximately $12 billion in funding to protect farmers from potential damage caused by tariffs imposed by China, Mexico, Russia and others.

According to the USDA, the imposed tariffs could cost US farmers approximately $11 billion, affecting products such as soybeans, milk and pork, as well as fruits, nuts, and other speciality crops.

The short-term relief funding will be provided through a range of support programmes, which aim to help agricultural producers meet the increased costs caused by disrupted markets.

Firstly, the new Market Facilitation Program will provide payments to producers of soybeans, sorghum, corn, wheat, cotton, dairy and hogs, which the USDA says “will help farmers manage disrupted markets, deal with surplus commodities, and expand and develop new markets at home and abroad.”

The USDA will also introduce the Food Purchase and Distribution Program, which will purchase “unexpected surplus of affected commodities” such as fruit, pork and milk for distribution to food banks and other nutrition programmes.

Finally, a Trade Promotion Program will be implemented, which will aim to assist in developing new export markets for US agricultural products.

US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said: “This is a short-term solution to allow President Trump time to work on long-term trade deals to benefit agriculture and the entire US economy.

“The President promised to have the back of every American farmer and rancher, and he knows the importance of keeping our rural economy strong.

“Unfortunately, America’s hard-working agricultural producers have been treated unfairly by China’s illegal trading practices and have taken a disproportionate hit when it comes illegal retaliatory tariffs.

“USDA will not stand by while our hard-working agricultural producers bear the brunt of unfriendly tariffs enacted by foreign nations.

“The programmes we are announcing today help ensure our nation’s agriculture continues to feed the world and innovate to meet the demand.”
