    TORONTO, Oct. 20 /CNW/ - PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) is proud once again
to be named as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2009. This year marks the
fifth year in a row that PwC is recognized as a top employer. Furthermore, for
the third year running, PwC has also been named one of Greater Toronto's Top

    PwC offers our employees comprehensive development programs, competitive
employee benefits packages, and progressive national and global career
opportunities. The firm also supports and encourages involvement with
corporate and social responsibility initiatives, including volunteer
activities that benefit the community.
    "At PwC, we put our people first - giving them a range of opportunities
to succeed both personally and professionally. We believe that when our people
succeed, then we also succeed as a firm," says Chris Clark, PwC's Canadian
Senior Partner and CEO. "Being a top employer for five years is external
recognition of our efforts to deliver a distinctive experience for our people
and to make PwC an employer of choice."
