These are the best places to work in Toronto and Canada

On the hunt for a job, but don’t know where to start? Glassdoor has you covered.

The US-based site that lets employees review companies has just revealed its list of the best places to work in Canada in 2023.

It’s the perfect jumping-off point if you’re looking for a workplace that ticks all of the boxes for your career goals.

“The past year brought extreme highs and lows for job seekers and employees, but despite an increasingly uncertain job market, Glassdoor data shows there are still companies hyper-focused on creating outstanding employee experiences,” said Christian Sutherland-Wong, Glassdoor’s chief executive officer.

According to the site, the list is based on the anonymous feedback employees provided on Glassdoor about their job, work environment, and employer over the past year.

The rankings were calculated using a company’s overall rating, which is based on a five-point scale with one meaning the employee was very dissatisfied, three meaning the workplace is okay, and five meaning the employee was very satisfied.

The best workplaces in Canada feature employers across multiple industries including technology, finance, consulting, telecommunications and insurance.

Google nabs the top spot with a 4.7 rating out of 5.

Ten companies are newcomers to the list, including QuadReal (third place with a 4.7), Ericsson-Worldwide (fourth place with a 4.7), and iA Groupe financier (fifth place with a 4.6).

Only Apple (17th place with a 4.6) has made the list every year for the past eight years.

The tech industry continues to dominate with great employee culture and career growth opportunities. There are eight tech employers on the list including Google, Nokia (14th place with a 4.6), and Apple.
