About the Competition
Now in its 14th 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 at Mediacorp 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. This year's winners were announced on January 17, 2023. Read the press release, issued January 17, 2023, for more background on this year's competition.
Employers are evaluated by the editors of Canada's Top 100 Employers using the same eight criteria as the national competition: (1) 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.
Any employer with its head office or principal place of business in New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia or Newfoundland & Labrador may apply for the Atlantic Canada's Top Employers competition. Employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
Applications for our 2024 competition will be available early in 2023. Our 2024 winners will be announced early in 2024. Join our mailing list to stay up to date and receive an application for next year's competition.
