Recognized as one of National Capital Region's Top Employers (2016)

Here are some of the reasons why Universities Canada / Universités Canada was selected as one of National Capital Region's Top Employers (2016):

  • Universities Canada considers previous work experience when setting individual vacation entitlements and starts the majority of its new employees with four weeks of paid vacation allowance -- employees can also schedule additional time off (up to five paid personal days) and enjoy time away from work with company closures during the summer and over the winter holidays
  • Universities Canada employees can easily take advantage of the city's great cycling network with secure bicycle parking, and are also encouraged to keep fit with a health club subsidy included in their health plan and the convenience of a shared onsite fitness facility
  • In keeping with its line of business, Universities Canada manages a generous academic scholarship program for children of employees interested in pursuing post-secondary studies (to $6,000 per child) and offers opportunities for the next generation of employees to gain on-the-job experience through paid internships, co-op placements, and summer student positions
