How Does Canada’s Outstanding Employers
Awards work?

  1. Companies must first register their participation in Take Our Kids to Work™ day on the first Wednesday in November with us.
  2. They then become eligible to apply for a Canada’s Outstanding Employee Award. The application deadline for a 2013 Canada’s Outstanding Employers is 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Wednesday, November 13, 2013.
  3. Entries are judged on five criteria based around how the companies engaged secondary school students on Take Our Kids to Work™ day, and how they promoted the benefits of early career exploration.
  4. Winners and honourable mentions are notified by early December.
