No one should be surprised to learn that Toronto continues to be Canada’s leader for fintech opportunities and now we know that Toronto’s fintechs are among the Best Workplaces in Canada.
Great Place to Work, an organization that evaluates companies based on company culture, has released its 2022 list of Canada’s Best Workplaces in Technology.
Organizations were selected based on Great Place to Work’s Trust Index Survey, which measures the employee experience at each company.
Employees are asked how frequently they experience behaviours that create a great workplace, including, transparency, collaboration, benefits, professional development, and work-life balance.
Here are nine Toronto fintechs that made Great Place to Work’s 2022 list:
