Canada’s best diversity employers revealed

This is the ninth year of the annual Canada’s Best Diversity Employers, to recognize those organizations that have exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness initiatives.

The prize, which is coordinated by Mediacorp Canada Inc., recognizes diversity in a number of areas, including programs for employees from five groups: LGBT people, women, aboriginal people, persons with disabilities and members of visible minorities.
