Cintas Canada announces winners of Canada’s Best Restroom

After nearly 43,000 votes, Cintas Canada, Ltd. has declared the Whitecourt Esso Super Station in Whitecourt, AB as Canada’s Best Restroom in 2016. Whitecourt captured nearly 90 per cent of the vote and will receive $2,500 in Cintas products and services.

Recently opened in July 2015, the restrooms at the Whitecourt Esso Super Station feature decorative lighting and wall tiles paired with sleek countertops, making it easy to forget that you’re in a gas station washroom.

“Public restrooms don’t typically get a lot of praise, which is why we’re proud to honour Whitecourt for its stylish stalls and commitment to cleanliness,” said Jillian Bauer, Assistant Marketing Manager, Cintas Corporation. “Whitecourt is the perfect example of a small town rallying around a business that is dedicated to providing clean and well-maintained restrooms.”

The 2016 finalists were selected based on cleanliness, visual appeal, innovation, functionality and unique design elements. Thousands of votes were cast online starting September 20th through October 24th, which produced the following results:

  1. Whitecourt Esso Super Station – Whitecourt, Alberta
  2. Sauce Italian Kitchen & Market – Calgary, Alberta
  3. Assiniboine Park Lyric Theatre – Winnipeg, Manitoba
  4. W Montreal – Montreal, Québec
