These Are Canada’s Top 100 Employers for 2017

Behold the Olympics of employment.

Every year, Mediacorp Canada organizes the Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition, which recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies.


Placing among the top 100 is a pretty impressive feat.

Around 7,500 employers applied through a process that’s about as rigorous as landing a job at Google.

Eight criteria were used to evaluate the companies: the physical workplace, work atmosphere, health, financial and family benefits, vacation and time off, employee communications, performance management, training and skills development, and community involvement.


Employers were compared head-to-head with similar workplaces in their fields to determine their performance.

So without further ado, here are Canada’s top 100 employers (and yes, we wish it were a ranking, too):
