The City of Toronto today was named one of Canada’s best diversity employers for the fourth consecutive year, for creating exceptional workplace diversity and inclusiveness programs.

This national competition organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc., recognizes employers for their programs that support women, members of visible minorities, persons with disabilities, Indigenous Peoples, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and two-spirited peoples.

Editors reviewed diversity and inclusiveness initiatives from employers who applied for the Canada’s Top 100 Employers national competition to determine this year’s winners. A shortlist was compiled and the candidates’ programs were compared to those of other employers in the same field. The finalists selected, as announced in a Globe and Mail magazine, represent the diversity leaders in their industry and region of Canada.
