Published each year, this list is a collection of businesses across Canada who are innovative leaders in their hiring practices, applying new ways of thinking to challenges that surround attracting and retaining the best talent.
I’m proud to say that six of this year’s winning companies are investors in Greater Halifax Partnership. Learn more about how these innovative industry leaders are standing out:

- Business Development Bank of Canada
- Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce / CIBC
- Deloitte & Touche LLP

Greater Halifax Partnership shares these organizations strong support of newcomer integration through initiatives like the Halifax Connector Program. A simple but effective referral process, Connector puts newcomers and international students in touch with local employers to build a network of contacts in Halifax. Since its inception, over one hundred immigrants have found full time work through their expanded contact base.
Support of initiatives like the Halifax Connector Program is another way these investors are standing out. We’re proud to be associated with such leading-edge organizations and look forward to continuing our strong partnership in the future.
