These are the Greater Toronto Area's top employers for 2021

It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but Canada’s largest city is home to some of the best employers in the country.

In its 15th edition, Greater Toronto’s Top Employers has become the benchmark in the GTA for workplace best-practices.

The minimum scores to secure a place on the GTA list routinely rank among the highest in the nation.

Each year, the winners are evaluated on the same eight criteria: physical workplace; work atmosphere and social; health, financial and family benefits; vacation and time-off; employee communications; performance management; training and skills development; and community involvement.

And even during the pandemic, workplaces managed to adapt and accommodate the rapidly changing environment.

“One of the biggest challenges for employers across the GTA this year is adapting rapidly to the changes that took place in how we live and work,” says Kristina Leung, Senior Editor of Canada’s Top 100 Employers project at Mediacorp. “For a region as diverse and dynamic as the GTA, this year’s winners have found creative ways to keep employees engaged and connected, even when working apart.”

From industry leaders in finance and software development to healthcare, public sector and non-profit organizations, this year’s winners “stand out for their resilience during the pandemic – and for going the extra distance to look after employees and support the community during a period that challenged even the strongest organizations.”

The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in the Greater Toronto Area; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
