TORONTO, May 1, 2013 /CNW/ - The editors of the Canada's Top 100 Employers project have released their 2014 application, which will determine the
winners of the national project as well as 20 other popular regional
and special-interest "top employer" competitions. Winners of the
national project will be announced this fall in The Globe and Mail.
"We expect to receive a record number of applications this year," says
Tony Meehan, Publisher at Mediacorp Canada Inc., which manages the
project. "Together with our newspaper and magazine partners, our
editors annually bring the stories of exceptional employers to more
than 13 million Canadians - more than ever before."
Each year, the editors at Canada's Top 100 Employers write more than 400,000 words explaining why the winning employers were
selected - publishing detailed Reasons for Selection is a
distinguishing feature of the project. These reasons are available
free of charge on Eluta.ca, the popular job search engine operated by Mediacorp. To determine the
national winners each year, Mediacorp editors evaluate applicants on
eight criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social;
(3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time-Off; (5)
Employee Communications; (6) Employee Engagement; (7) Training & Skills
Development; and (8) Community Involvement.
Now entering its 14th year, the Canada's Top 100 Employers project recognizes the companies and organizations across Canada that
lead their industries in providing exceptional places to work.
Employers complete a detailed application to be considered for the
national competition, 11 regional awards and nine special-interest
competitions, including: Canada's Top Employers for Young People,
Canada's Best Diversity Employers, Canada's Greenest Employers,
Financial Post's Ten Best Companies to Work For, and Canada's Top
This year, the Top 100 editorial team will be unveiling a new award,

this important part of Canada's economy. SMEs account for 45% of
Canada's GDP, much of the economy's growth, 60% of all jobs in the
economy, and 75% of net employment growth.
