National Capital Region's Top Employers

Recognizing the employers in Canada's National Capital Region that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work

Background
Now entering its tenth year, the National Capital Region's Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Ottawa-area employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

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.

Editorial Partner
Our editorial partner on the National Capital Region's Top Employers project is the Ottawa Citizen, the largest newspaper in the National Capital Region. Each year, the Citizen announces the winners in a special newspaper supplement that also includes our editorial reasons for selecting each employer. This year's winners were announced in the Ottawa Citizen on February 5, 2014: Download (PDF 2.8Mb)

Eligibility Requirements
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in the National Capital Region may apply for this competition. Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.

2015 Competition
Our 2015 winners will be announced in the Ottawa Citizen early in 2015. Full editorial calendar »
