MacEwan University is one of Canada’s Best Employers, according to a new survey released by Forbes Magazine.

Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to compile the annual list, surveying more than 8,000 Canadians working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Participants were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family, as well as nominating organizations other than their own.

MacEwan is the top Alberta-based employer on the Forbes list, and one of two Alberta post-secondary institutions included on the full list of 300 employers.

“MacEwan University is known for its commitment to people,” says Dr. Annette Trimbee, president and vice-chancellor. “We understand the impact our faculty and staff have on the experiences of our students, and are extremely proud of the role we play as Edmonton’s downtown university – in our city, our province, our country and beyond.”

The 2021 Forbes list includes 300 Canadian employers representing a variety of different fields, Cisco holds the top spot, followed by Environment and Climate Change Canada in second place and video game company Ubisoft in third place.
