Best Places To Work Canada returns: Enter today

Once again partnering with MEGAMIGS

You can enter the GamesIndustry.biz Canada Best Places To Work Awards 2022 from today.

The awards are open to all Canada games companies, including developers, publishers, service companies, retail and media, and you can submit your company through here.The judging period ends on Friday, September 16th.

The main badge winners will be revealed ahead of MEGAMIGS, Canada's premier video games industry event that takes place in Montréal. Meanwhile, the special award winners will be announced during MEGAMIGS itself, with finalists invited to the show.

The Best Places To Work Awards are based on a two survey system, one for the employer to fill in (and worth 20% of the score) and the other for employees (80% of the score). We have also further strengthened our red line check system, to help ensure underrepresented groups within these organisations are heard. For a detailed rundown on how the awards process works, our Frequently Asked Questions and how these awards are judged, click here.

All responses are entirely confidential and deleted once the reporting is complete. Businesses that do not win will not be named.

Participant can receive a free report from us featuring their overall scores, and we also have benchmarking and advanced reports available for a fee.

Alongside the list of 'Best Places', we will also reveal the winners of our special prizes, covering areas such as CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), Health & Wellbeing, Education and support for the Environment. These awards are automatically entered by those who sign-up, and are based on how you score in these individual areas. We'll also reveal the 2022 Canada Best Boss.

To take part, simply click here. If you want to submit someone for the Best Boss award, email bestplacestowork@gamesindustry.biz. The deadline for all completed entries is Friday, September 16th.
