Background: First published in 2006, Saskatchewan’s Top Employers is an annual competition organized by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers. This special designation recognizes the Saskatchewan employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offers the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

Media Partners: The media partners on Saskatchewan’s Top Employers project are the two largest newspapers in Saskatchewan: the Saskatoon StarPhoenix and the Regina Leader-Post.
