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 that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. This year's winners, including McGill University, were announced on February 1, 2018 in a special magazine published in the Montreal Gazette.
Here are some of the reasons why McGill University was selected as one of Montreal's Top Employers (2018):
- With one of the country's most beautiful urban campuses, McGill University employees enjoy access to an incredible variety of onsite and nearby amenities, including restaurants, cafes, campus cafeterias, pubs and shops -- employees can also take advantage of the university's fully-equipped athletics centre, which features instructor-led classes, a swimming pool, indoor golf facilities, a martial arts room and a sports medicine clinic
- McGill University maintains a Social Equity and Diversity Education Office to provide information, education and training in order to cultivate a respectful and supportive campus culture -- and recognizes community members who further equity and inclusivity at the university through the Award for Equity and Community Building
- As part of the organization's raison d'être, McGill University invests in the education of future and current generations with academic scholarships for children of employees and tuition subsidies for employees who pursue courses at outside institutions
