Two Vancouver-based companies have topped Forbes Magazine’s list of Canada’s 25 best employers.

BC Hydro comes out on top of the list, which was published by the business and financial publication, while Vancity Credit Union ranked 2nd.

The list of 25 best Canadian employers was put together by asking more than 8,000 workers how likely they were to recommend their employer to someone else and how they felt about other employers in their industry.

“The resulting list includes 250 employers across 25 industries – ranging from corporate giants to community-based financial institutions to universities and government agencies–where employees feel right at home at the office,” Forbes said.

BC Hydro and Vancity Credit Union beat out major multinational corporations such as Costco (5th), Google (9th) and Apple (31st) to take the top spots in the 2016 ranking.
