About Canada’s Top Employers Award
The Canada’s Top Employers Award, organized by the editors of “Canada’s Top 100 Employers,” is an annual national competition to identify employers in Canada which lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces.
What distinguishes the competition is their publication of specific, detailed reasons for selection. The organization writes that this:
“provides transparency in the selection of winners and ‘raises the bar’ so that other employers can discover and adopt initiatives that work well elsewhere.”
