Canada's Best Diversity Employers

Recognizing the employers that offer Canada's most inclusive workplaces

Background
Now entering its eighth year, Canada's Best Diversity Employers recognizes employers across Canada that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs. This competition examines a range of diversity initiatives, including programs for five major employee groups: (a) Women; (b) Members of visible minorities; (c) Persons with disabilities; (d) Aboriginal peoples; and (e) Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgendered/Transsexual (LGBT) peoples. This competition replaced our two annual rankings of the top employers for women and visible minorities, which we published as an appendix to our book between 2002 and 2007, when the present competition was launched.

Eligibility Requirements
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in Canada may apply for this competition. Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector. Each applicant should have an interesting initiative for at least one of the five above diversity groups covered by this competition.

Editorial Partner
The Globe and Mail is our newspaper partner on the Canada's Best Diversity Employers competition, publishing a special feature announcing the winners each year. The special section includes extensive background on this year's winners, prepared by the Globe's team. Read the 2014 announcement, published in the February 10, 2014 of the Report on Business section of The Globe and Mail.

Selection Process
To determine the 2014 winners of the Canada's Best Diversity Employers competition (list shown at right), Mediacorp editors reviewed the applications of employers that applied for the 2014 Canada's Top 100 Employers project. Over 3,500 employers across Canada started the application process for this year's competition, which was reduced to a short-listed group of employers with noteworthy and unique diversity initiatives. Each short-listed candidate's programs were reviewed to determine how they compared to those of other employers in the same field. The finalists chosen represent the diversity leaders in their industry and region of Canada.

2015 Competition
Our 2015 winners will be announced in a special newspaper feature to be published by The Globe and Mail early in 2015. Full editorial calendar »

How to Apply
Employers apply for this competition through the Canada's Top 100 Employers application process. Employers complete a single application package for both competitions. Request an application.
