IMAX Corporation
IMAX employees in the office's reception area  

Recognized as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers

Here are some of the reasons why IMAX Corporation was selected as one of Greater Toronto's Top Employers (2018):

  • IMAX's head office is uniquely shaped to appear from an aerial view as if the building is on one of the company's original rolling-loop projectors -- the workplace features its own IMAX theatre (employees can invite friends and family for weekend viewings), barrier-free washrooms, shower facilities and space for weekly yoga and Pilates classes -- outside, the company maintains 2 bicycles for employee use during the work day
  • IMAX's subsidized social committee organizes a number of events and celebrations for staff each year including a children's holiday party, IMAX friends and family movie screenings for major blockbuster events, and summer events such as a volleyball tournament and billiard and bowling nights
  • Along with helping employees save for the future, IMAX extends its health benefits plan to retirees (with no age limit) -- and cultivates an ownership culture through a share purchase plan (available to all employees)
