Forbes partnered with Statista to compile its annual list of Canada’s Best Employers.

The rankings are based on a survey of more than 12,000 Canadians working for companies and institutions with at least 500 employees. They were asked to rate how likely they were to recommend their current employer and could recommend employers other than their own.

Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, was named the number-one employer in the country, followed by Toronto’s Canadian Mental Health Association and The Keg Steakhouse and Bar based out of Richmond finished third.
