Mediacorp Canada Inc. announced the winners of the annual competition that lists the top employers in the nation for young people on Thursday, and a number of Toronto and Ontari0-based companies are featured.

Canada's Top Employers for Young People is an editorial competition that recognizes employers that offer the best workplaces and programs in the country for young people at the start of their careers, and winners are chosen based on the programs and initiatives they offer to attract and retain younger workers. 

This year, because of the pandemic, employers had to put even more effort into attracting and keeping young talent.

Inspired by today's announcement of Top Employers for Young People ✨ Congrats to all the organizations selected this year & thank you for helping the next generation launch successful careers.
