If you work for a company with headquarters in Mississauga, you might be happy to learn that there’s a chance your place of employment has been recognized by prestigious business publication Forbes as one of the best employers in the country.

The list is actually enormous and features 300 companies from across Canada, including Queen’s University, Toronto Hydro, Google, Ubisoft, Costo, Environment Canada and more.

In terms of businesses with headquarters in Mississauga, the 19 lucky companies who made the list include:

As for how the ranking system works, Forbes collaborated with online statistics provider Statista to ask 8,000 Canadian employees working for large organizations to rate their willingness to recommend their company to others on a scale of 1 – 10. The employees surveyed were not contacted through their employers, but anonymously through “several online access panels.”

Forbes also added that respondents were asked to name good or bad employers in sectors and industries that were not their own.

The top 300 employers, which represent 25 different industries, were highlighted based on those results.
