Are you one of Ottawa’s top employers?


OBJ and the Ottawa Board of Trade are on the hunt for outstanding employers who are creating engaging, challenging and safe work environments.

Registration for Best Places to Work in Ottawa is now open. This survey and awards programs invites employers to undertake a two-step process to determine how they rank against other local organizations.

Step one is a detailed employer assessment. Step two is an employee feedback survey.

The deadline to register is May 27. Research will start in June.

“We’ve been working on this awards program for more than a decade and, quite frankly, I don’t think it has ever been more relevant,” says OBJ publisher Michael Curran. “The war for talent is on and this survey is a way for employers to measure how they stack up.”

To be eligible, you must meet the following criteria:

  • at least 15 full- or part-time permanent employees working in Ottawa
  • a physical operation in Ottawa
  • a publicly or privately held organization
  • a for-profit, not-for-profit, or a government organization
  • at least one year in business

All employer and employee remains confidential. Results will be accessible to registered companies through an online dashboard.

Employers will receive results in late summer. The top ranked organizations will be profiled by OBJ and celebrated as part of the Ottawa Talent Summit, a conference scheduled for October.

There is a fee to participate. For more information, visit
