Revealed: The best video games employers in Canada
Four winners for our inaugural awards
Beenox, Behaviour Interactive, Ludia and Ubisoft are the winners of our inaugural Best Places To Work Awards Canada.
It was a tight and highly competitive contest, with over 30 companies taking part. However, only four scored over the all-important 85% to claim one of our special Best Places badges.
Beenox is the Activision-owned studio that's best known for its support work on the Call of Duty and Skylanders franchises.
Behaviour Interactive is a work-for-hire specialist, and is credited on Fallout Shelter and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It has also worked on numerous original properties, including Dead by Daylight (which it owns).
Ludia is a smartphone developer that has worked on a number of major IP including Jurassic World, How To Train Your Dragon and Battlestar Galactica.
And finally Ubisoft is Canada's biggest games employer, where it develops some of its biggest IP including Assassin's Creed, Watch Dogs, Splinter Cell and Far Cry.

To win a Best Places To Work Awards badge, employers had to submit a survey that accounted for 25% of their final score. Employees at each company were then surveyed, with their responses making up 75% of the result.
The awards were run in partnership with Montreal International Games Summit.
It comes a month after the UK Best Places To Work Awards, which took place at London's Ham Yard Hotel. To see the winners of that event, click here.
Update: Following widespreads abuse allegations at Ubisoft, we have strengthened the Best Places To Work Awards judging to ensure we capture issues that may only have affected a minority of employees.
