Montreal, March 1, 2023 – For the fifth year in a row, CIUSSS West-Central Montreal has been recognized as one of Montreal's Top Employers for 2023, as announced by Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project.

“It is an honour for our CIUSSS to be counted among Montreal's Top Employers,” says Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg, President and CEO of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. “Our ultimate objective is to deliver the best possible care to users of health care and social services. This designation is especially meaningful, given our determination to provide staff with the essential support they need."

“Not only do we aim to foster a stimulating environment of innovation and creativity for our employees, but we also care deeply about their health and well-being and have put in place a number of services or tools to assist them every day," says Maria Monaco, Senior Chief of Talent Acquisition for CIUSSS West-Central Montreal. “We offer a comprehensive Employee Assistance Program (EAP), we have opened a daycare centre, and continue to operate a COVID- 19 employee hotline. We are also in the process of planning our third annual Gratitude Week for the spring, aimed at recognizing and thanking all employees across our CIUSSS."

Montreal’s Top Employers is a special designation that recognizes employers in Greater Montreal that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work.

Employers were evaluated by the editors at Canada’s Top 100 Employers using the same criteria as the national competition:

  • Workplace
  • Work & Social Atmosphere
  • Health, Financial & Family Benefits
  • Vacation & Time Off
  • Employee Communications
  • Performance Management
  • Training & Skills Development
  • Community Involvement

"The entire staff at CIUSSS West-Central Montreal is very dedicated and works extremely hard to deliver the highest level of care to users of our health care and social services", says Alan
Maislin, President of CIUSSS West-Central Montreal's Board of Directors. "We care about our staff. And we understand that focusing on the needs of healthcare users, and meeting those
needs, can only be achieved if we take the same approach toward our own employees. Being recognized as a top employer is very much appreciated".

Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.

The full list of Montreal’s Top Employers (2023) was announced in a special magazine copublishedwith the Montreal Gazette. Detailed reasons for selection for each of this year’s winners, as well as additional stories and photos, were also released by the editors and are accessible via the competition homepage, where the  CIUSSS West-Central Montreal page can be found.
