There's a new ranking for the best employers in Canada
It may not always be easy to land your dream job with the ideal employer in Canada, but the newly-released Forbes list of Canada’s Best Employers will at least give you an idea of where to start.
The list, which Forbes compiled in partnership with market research company Statista, is comprised of 300 businesses with at least 500 employees.
The top of list is unsurprisingly dominated by well-known corporate names, with Google's Toronto office taking the number one spot.

"Canadians have been enjoying a strong job market of late, with the unemployment rate hovering at 5.6 [per cent], after reaching an alltime low of 5.4 [per cent] earlier last year," writes Forbes staff member Vicky Valet.
"While good news for employees, this environment has tested employers, challenging them to do more to attract and retain top talent. As always, some firms are outpacing the competition."
Hey @ErinOTooleMP , you are telling us that the Canadian economy sucks and we are all out of work. I think Forbes sees it differently. I’m betting that it’s not Forbes that’s lying. #cdnpoli Canada's Best Employers 2020 https://t.co/x9gqBI3EJg— I’m Roamin’ Eh? 🇨🇦🇺🇦✊🏍 (@R11RT) January 29, 2020
Here are the 20 best employers in Canada according to Forbes.
The list was created by surveying 8,000 Canadians, with each participant remaining anonymous allowing them to openly share their opinions.
Participants were asked to rate how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, on a scale of zero to 10, and they were also asked to nominate organizations other than their own.
The final list includes the 300 employers that received the most recommendations.
