Challenging our people

Good ideas can come from anywhere. As one of Canada’s Top-100 employers, we know that the creative, collaborative energy integral to our success comes from engaged people, no matter what their role in DIALOG. We are committed to continuous learning and educational programs, and training and mentoring are a key part of our culture. We don’t believe in making people wade through a mound of policies and bureaucracy to get their jobs done, rather we believe in empowering people to make decisions that work. From amazing open concept, accessible offices to a flat organizational structure to a company-wide mandate to have fun, DIALOG, simply put, is a great place to work.




In Spring 2017, the associates across all of our studios worked together for a full day on initiatives designed to foster collaboration and encourage the development of innovative ideas. Sounds vague, maybe, but that was the point.

Their mission: They can work on whatever they want, with whomever they want, however they want. One stipulation: it should be for the betterment of DIALOG and our community.

See what they did.


Our award-winning education program has been designed to enhance the collaborative and integrated way we work, foster creativity and give our people the tools they need to constantly improve. The curriculum features a weekly workshop at each studio with internal and external speakers.

Iris Prize
Iris Prize

The $7,500 prize, awarded annually, funds expenses related to any DIALOG employee’s Iris Prize submission. This includes two weeks paid leave to conduct field research in an area of personal interest, relevant to the practice of architecture, engineering, interior design, planning, or urban design.

Supporting initiatives

We believe it is important to nurture talent, and we have been investing in future leaders since 1984. Our scholarships are awarded to several disciplines including Architecture, Urban Design, Structural Engineering and Technology.
