UNBC named one of B.C.’s top employers for fourth time in six years

PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The University of Northern British Columbia has been named one of BC’s Top 100 employers once again.

The University was recognized for outstanding contributions in work-life balance, ongoing educational opportunities and parental leave benefits.

The University was chosen by the editors of Canada’s Top 100 Employers.

“UNBC faculty and staff work diligently to create a welcoming, constructive and collaborative workplace and this award recognizes this commitment to excellence,” says UNBC President Dr. Daniel Weeks. “By fostering a positive work environment, UNBC is able to recruit and retain exceptional faculty and staff.”

Canada’s Top 100 Employers found many highlights that UNBC offers when it comes to employment:
