Toronto, Mar 3 (IBNS): The City of Toronto was named one of Canada's best diversity employers for the third consecutive year for its exceptional workplace diversity and inclusion programs by Mediacorp Canada Inc. media reports said.

Mediacorp Canada Inc, one of Canada's largest specialty publisher of employment periodicals, manages Canada's Top 100 Employers project and the Eluta.ca job search engine.

"Being a leading organization, the City of Toronto makes diversity and inclusion an important part of creating positive workplaces," Toronto Mayor John Tory was reported to state. "I'm proud of our Toronto Public Service and the high quality services and programs we provide to Toronto residents, businesses and visitors."

Five groups of employees who were recognized as leaders by the annual competition were those who created inclusive workplaces and programs for
women, members of visible minorities, persons with disabilities, Aboriginal Peoples and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender peoples.

"Creating an environment where members of the Toronto Public Service are treated equitably is what we continuously strive for to make the City of Toronto a great place to work," Peter Wallace, Toronto City Manager was reported to state. "Being an employer of choice means working to embed equity and diversity in all of our programs and initiatives, whether internally for staff or externally to the community we serve."

The criteria used by the editors to determine this year's winners from employers who applied for the Canada's Top 100 Employers national competition were diversity and inclusiveness initiatives..

A short list of employers with unique initiatives was compiled and the candidates' programs were compared to programs of other employers in the same field.

The finalists chosen represented the diversity leaders in their industry and their region of Canada, the organisation said.
