We’re proud to share that First Capital has once again been named one of Canada’s Top Small and Medium Employers for 2022 by Mediacorp Canada and The Globe and Mail. Now in its 9th year, Canada’s Top Small & Medium Employers is an editorial competition that recognizes the small and medium employers (SMEs) that offer the nation’s best workplaces and forward-thinking human resources policies. Companies are evaluated based on leadership in employee culture, benefits & total rewards, communication, training & education, and community involvement

We’re honoured to have been named one of Canada’s Top SMEs for the third year in a row. This speaks to our ongoing goal of fostering a rewarding, inclusive, enthusiastic, and supportive workplace – where everyone is able to bring their best selves to work and are given the necessary tools they need to succeed.
