Montréal’s Top Employers (2020)


First published in 2006, Montréal’s Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the employers in Greater Montréal[1] that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. This year’s winners were announced on January 30, 2020 in a special magazine[2] published in the Montreal Gazette and in an extended online feature[3]. For more background on this year’s competition, read the press release (English[4] | French[5]) issued on the announcement date.

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 offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Media Partner

Our media partner on the Montréal’s Top Employers project is the Montreal Gazette, the oldest continuously published newspaper in North America. Each year, the winners are announced in a special magazine published in the Montreal Gazette, which includes a summary of our editors’ reasons for selecting each employer.
