About the Company

Who we are
SCC is a small but impactful Crown corporation that reports to Parliament through Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada. Using our expertise and vast network, SCC helps organizations by opening a gateway to possibilities, both at home and abroad. We bring people together, foster collaboration and expand their horizons in trade, sustainability, and global connectivity. We represent and advance Canada’s interests on the international stage in ways no other organization can.
As Canada’s national standardization body, SCC offers more than a few pieces of the standards development and conformity assessment puzzle. We provide comprehensive strategies that allow Canadian businesses and innovators to contribute to shaping established and emerging markets. We help knock down trade barriers and create opportunities for businesses to innovate and expand into new markets by laying the foundation for their success.
SCC’s work also helps drive Canada’s health, well-being, and economic prosperity. Whether it’s the food we eat, the products and technologies we use, or how we get to work, every aspect of our lives is touched by standards. Standards and conformity assessment not only provide confidence in the quality and safety of products and services, but they also play an integral role in improving the overall health and safety of Canadians, and of their environment. At SCC, everything we do is aimed at improving Canadians’ quality of life and economic prosperity.

Our culture
A 2020 – 2023 winner of Waterstone’s Canada’s Most Admired Corporate Cultures award, we foster a culture founded on our values of respect, professionalism, and integrity. At SCC, we believe that an empowered and engaged workforce is essential to deliver on our vision and mission. A people-centric culture means that we are all working together to achieve a common goal.
Our diversity is our strength. We believe that leveraging our unique backgrounds helps to create a stronger, more cohesive team. Proudly, we can report that 30% of our team identifies as belonging to a visible minority, 60% of our team is female, and 62% of our leadership team is female. Not only do we serve the public in both Official Languages, but we are able to go above and beyond: with a staff complement of 150, we speak over 20 languages at SCC.
SCC has implemented a hybrid working model. Our model balances remote work with coming together in person when it is purposeful. This position can work remotely most of the time, while requiring in-person work regularly. SCC’s office is located at 55 Metcalfe Street in downtown Ottawa.
