Forbes has just released its Canada’s Best Employers 2018 list.
The massive list includes 300 employers from across the country, and for the second year in a row, Ontario dominated the top 25.
In collaboration with online statistics provider Statista, Forbes collected its data by asking over 8,000 Canadian employees working for large firms or institutions with at least 500 employees to rate their willingness to recommend their own companies on a scale of zero to 10 in addition to being asked more than 30 detailed questions about working conditions.
The employees were surveyed anonymously through several online access panels.
Respondents were also asked how they feel about other employers in their respected sectors or industries besides their own, according to Statista. The top employers on the list represent 24 different industries in Canada.
Ranking in at number one is Toronto’s Google office, jumping up to the top spot from its fourth place position in 2017. Mississauga’s Kruger Products came in second, followed by Hydro Québec in third.
Last year’s first place employer, Queen’s University, fell to the sixth spot, and 2016’s best employer, Vancouver’s BC Hydro, dropped all the way to to 142nd.
