About the Competition

Background

Now in its 9th year, Atlantic Canada's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers in Canada's four Atlantic provinces that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. It's a unique project for us because this competition extends across four provinces – the only one of its kind – as we recognize that many employers in Atlantic Canada have operations across the region. This list replaces our previous Top Employers in the Maritimes and New Brunswick's Top Employers projects, which were published until 2006 and 2008, respectively. Read the press release issued on January 3, 2018 announcing this year's winners. This year's winners were announced in a special feature in the January 2018 issue of Atlantic Business magazine.

Selection Process

Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
