WSP Canada named one of GTA’s top employers for 2019

WSP’s recognition as a top greater Toronto area employer reflects our commitment to putting our people first.

WSP in Canada has been recognized as one of “Greater Toronto’s Top Employers”. This is the first year that the firm has been recognized and presented with this prestigious designation.


Proud and empowered talent is essential to our overall success. We’re building a workplace that offers the most fulfilling career opportunities and a home for great ideas and new energy. It is an honour to be one of the GTA’s Top Employers.
Ian MacLeod Chief Human Resources and Safety Officer, WSP Canada


WSP was specifically chosen for the following reasons:

  • Investments in ongoing employee development and helping to nurture the next generation of talent through a dedicated new graduate program (with rotational and non-rotational streams), co-op placements and paid internships
  • Offering referral bonuses as an incentive for employees to recruit candidates from their personal networks
  • Providing maternity leave top-up payments and offering the option for employees to extend their leave into an unpaid leave of absence

The Greater Toronto’s Top Employers recognizes employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies. Employers are evaluated on eight criteria: (1) Physical Workplace; (2) Work Atmosphere & Social; (3) Health, Financial & Family Benefits; (4) Vacation & Time-Off; (5) Employee Communications; (6) Performance Management; (7) Training & Skills Development; and (8) Community Involvement. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs. The annual competition is open to any employer with its head office in the Greater Toronto Area; employers of any size may apply, whether private or public sector.
