We value a creative workplace that balances work and family life. Our staff and their families live in the Brant, Hamilton, Cambridge, Kitchener, Waterloo and Norfolk regions.

MMMC’s staff are active contributors to the communities that we live in and in the communities in which we work. We help make successful communities by giving back through volunteerism, involvement in service clubs, and through meaningful charitable donations and sponsorships.
