Canada's Top Employers for Young People

Profiling the organizations that lead the nation in attracting and retaining younger employees

Background
First published in 2002, the Canada's Top Employers for Young People competition is organized by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers that offer the nation's best benefits for younger workers. The employers on this list are Canada's leaders in attracting and retaining younger employees to their organizations. Before 2007, this competition was published annually as an appendix to the Canada's Top 100 Employers paperback. Read our press release issued on September 24, 2013 announcing this year's winners.

Selection Process
Each employer is evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers in terms of the programs they have to attract and retain younger workers. These include benefits such as tuition assistance and the availability of co-op or work-study programs. Our editors also examine each employer's mentorship and training programs, including benefits such as bonuses paid when employees complete certain courses or professional designations. We also review each employer's career management program, looking for initiatives -- such as company-wide skills inventories -- that can assist younger workers advance faster in the organization. Lastly, our editors also look at the average age of employees at each employer to better understand the composition and profile of their workforce.
