MAXIMUS Canada received the award for providing exceptional citizen

empathetic service, yielding high citizen satisfaction and employee
engagement rates, and an agent quality rating of 99 percent.

Chief Executive Officer of MAXIMUS. “This award reflects MAXIMUS
Canada’s exemplary dedication to serving the public in partnership with
our British Columbia customer.”

According to Martha Dorris, Founder and CEO of DCI and the Service to
the Citizen Awards program, “MAXIMUS Canada illustrates the dedication
and commitment in providing a 21st century experience for
citizens through innovation and transformative government services.”

“Our partnership with MAXIMUS Canada has helped us deliver a high
quality, modern, citizen-centered experience through multiple channels
including our Service BC Contact Centre and Service BC offices across
the province,” said Jinny Sims, British Columbia’s Minister of Citizens’
Services. “We handle over half a million inquiries annually and have
received a near 90 percent citizen satisfaction rating, demonstrating
our joint commitment to continuous improvement in service of both people
and businesses.”

government client and the public served by their program.”
