We wanted to tell our loyal patients (and soon to be patients) that we were nominated for the important Vital Employer Excellence Award. As you probably know, the Vital Employer Excellence Award recognizes employers who have played a vital role in creating rewarding employment opportunities for youth in Cape Breton. This is, obviously, near and dear to our heart and we are very proud of this nomination. If you or someone you know is interested in working with us, please check https://www.islandeyecare.ns.ca/contact-us/career-opportunities/ for our latest employment opportunities. Below is the announcement from the NextGen Leadership Society: Congratulations to Island Eyecare Ltd, under the direction of Dr. Shaun MacInnis, on being nominated for a Vital Employer Award!
Since returning to Cape Breton 5 years ago, Dr. MacInnis and his team at Island Eyecare have been innovative leaders in their field.
Dr. MacInnis has invested in Cape Breton by ensuring that Island Eyecare only uses top-notch, state of the art equipment, and has assembled a dedicated young team to provide the best possible care to their community. Through Dr. MacInnis’ leadership, staff members are able to continue their professional growth and obtain training within various aspects of the optometry world.
In just five years, Island Eyecare has grown to include two additional optometrists, and employ a staff of twelve all under the age of 40.
