Canada's Top Family-Friendly Employers

Profiling the employers that offer Canada's most progressive family-friendly benefits

Background
Now entering its 14th year, Canada's Top Family-Friendly Employers is one of the longest-running competitions within the Canada's Top 100 Employers project. This special designation recognizes the employers offering the nation's most progressive and forward-thinking programs for employees with young children. The employers on this list are the leaders in helping employees balance their work and family commitments. Our 2014 winners were announced in a special online feature published on December 9, 2013 in The Globe and Mail.

Selection Process
The editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers evaluate each employer in terms of the programs and initiatives they have to assist employees with young families. These include benefits such as maternity and parental leave top-up, the availability of flexible work arrangements and assistance with daycare. Our editors also examine the employer's health benefit plans, determining whether family coverage is provided (and at what cost), and look at emerging issues in this field, such as benefits for adoptive parents and compassionate leave for taking care of elderly parents. In addition, our editors look at other programs each employer may have to address specific work-life balance issues unique to their industry.

Editorial Partner
Our editorial partner on this competition is The Globe and Mail. Each year, the Globe announces the winners of the competition in a special feature published on its popular website, which now reaches over 4 million Canadians each month.

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. The Canada's Top Family-Friendly Employers winners are a sub-set of our annual Canada's Top 100 Employers list.

2015 Competition
Our 2015 winners will be announced in a special feature to be published by The Globe and Mail in December 2014. Full editorial calendar »

How to Apply
