Halton Region named top employer for sixth year in a row

Halton Region takes pride in being a great place to work and our commitment to attracting a talented and dedicated workforce is reflected in the high-quality service we provide to residents. This is why we were honoured to learn that Halton Region was named one of the Greater Toronto Employers for 2017 by Mediacorp Canada Inc.

The annual competition measures a wide range of criteria, identifies organizations offering exceptional working environments that promote employee engagement and success.

Professional development opportunities and a competitive compensation package were among the reasons why Mediacorp selected Halton Region as a top employer. This included:

  • a newly-launched internship and apprenticeship program;
  • summer student and co-op opportunities;
  • retirement planning assistance and a defined pension plan; and
  • maternity and parental leave benefits.

I am proud of all our staff at Halton Region. We have a diverse workforce that is committed to job number one—making Halton a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire.
