Canadian Students Pick Federal and Provincial Gov't as Top Employers

A desire for job security, work-life balance and meaningful careers coupled with a changing demographic means a new ballgame for Canadian employers.

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Education Editor, News Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - The 2010 Canada's Top Campus Employers Report, produced by Brainstorm Strategy Group Inc. and DECODE, finds the Government of Canada at the top of the overall employer rankings. Provincial and municipal governments, Health Canada, the Public Service Commission and the Canadian Forces also make it to the top 25. In the corporate sector household names like Google, Apple, Microsoft and Facebook all made the list, as well as Research in Motion, Deloitte, Air Canada and Bombardier.

Non-profit organizations made a strong showing with the Hospital for Sick Children, the Canadian Cancer Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the David Suzuki Foundation and Oxfam all ranking in the top 25.

The 2010 Canada's Top Campus Employers Report reflects the attitudes of more than 27,000 Canadian university and college students on what makes a great employer and for which companies they want to work. The report provides insights into the career interests and aspirations of today's students. It also reflects their views on issues like job security and work-life balance, information invaluable for employers in today's rapidly changing labour market.

The report was launched in 2004 and is conducted annually by Brainstorm Strategy Group Inc. and DECODE. The rankings also feature six sub-groups that list the top 25 employers as rated by students in liberal arts, engineering, information technology, natural sciences, undergraduate business, and MBA programs.
