Forbes Magazine has posted a list of Canada’s Best Employers where two of Kingston’s education institutions have made it into the top 100.

Out of 250 listed employers, Queen’s University was ranked #17 and Limestone District School Board came in at #99 for the country.

The ratings were determined by Forbes, working with online statistics provider Statista, who asked over 8,000 Canadian workers to rank – on a scale of zero to ten – how likely they would be to recommend their employer to someone else.

They were additionally asked how they felt about the other employers in their industry.

The result was a list of 250 employers from 25 industries that included financial institutions, universities and government agencies.

The Top 5 employers (in order) are : BC Hydro, Vancity, ABB, Ubisoft, and Costco Wholesale.
