These are the best companies for women in Canada

Employers who celebrate diversity have been honoured once more in this year’s list of the Best Workplaces™ for Women in Canada by Great Place to Work®.

In order to be eligible for the prestigious awards, the organization must have at least 15 female employees. They must also register a 90% approval rating, from both gendered workers, to the phrase ‘I am treated fairly regardless of me sex’.

A prior study from Great Place to Work found that women’s careers benefit when business leaders try to find new ways of making jobs more meaningful, regardless of gender.


“You can tell a lot about a company by how women feel about working there,” added Great Place to Work® president Chinwe Onyeagoro. “When female employees say the environment is fair and fulfilling, that’s a strong indicator that the business maintains an even playing field for other employees, too.”


“It turns out that exceptional work cultures for women also produce outstanding workplaces for all employees. Companies that lead in this way—by emphasizing the daily engagement and long-term buy-in of women—will see better performance from their teams and a stronger slate of leaders to helm their organizations in the future.”
