Our Priorities

Passion, shared values and a desire to provide the best value to the changemakers we serve.

We are committed to cultivating a workplace culture where our team can thrive and grow professionally and personally. We work with clients all across Canada, and we live, work, play and invest in Atlantic Canada. As our name, Mara, suggests, we find purpose by the sea. 

Our Culture and Values

We view culture to be a core difference maker for in-demand people. After all, a big reason why we founded Mara in the first place was to create an environment that is anchored to a set of strong, shared, cultural goals.


We are genuinely curious and deliberately creative – solving complex problems and developing innovative solutions


We aim to build capacity, not dependence


We are better together, and we celebrate the moments that matter 


We are proud of our community and the new communities we help build 


We value the lived experiences and contributions of our colleagues, clients, partners and communities 

Life-Long Learning

We love to learn; we revel in our work and take on challenges with passion and positivity 

Community Involvement

Each member of the Mara Team has personal charities and local causes that they support. Our team members are board members, coaches, community and industry association leaders and community volunteers. We also take great pride in giving back as a team through actively participating in charitable fundraising activities and through sponsorships. For example, each year, our team pulls together to support the Parker Street Food and Furniture Bank Holiday Family Sponsorship Program, to make a local family’s Holiday a little bit brighter. We are also active supporters of Feed NS and other charitable causes throughout the year.
