The annual competition recognizes employers "that lead their industries offering exceptional places to work" in British Columbia.
"Being named one of the province's top employers makes trustees extremely proud," said Board of Education chairperson Shawn Wilson.

The list of B.C.'s Top Employers for 2017 has been published in a special magazine supplement in the Vancouver Sun. See the Detailed Reasons for selection.
