BC's Top Employers Award

BC's Top Employers 2021The Career Directory

Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) is honoured to be recognized as one of BC’s Top Employers for 2021 and one of Canada's Best Employers for Recent Graduates, and we’re proud to help our employees shape what is possible.

Creating a supportive, inspiring workplace full of choice is our goal. As a KPU employee, individuals are able to choose from a generous maternity and parental leave top-up. Our inclusive workplace also offers a parental top-up for fathers and adoptive parents, ensuring employees can be with their growing families at such a crucial and exciting time.

We also strive to keep our university community as healthy as possible. Our horticulture students grow produce that’s available for purchase, and KPU hosts a range of conferences and speakers discussing mental health and other initiatives that foster health and wellness.

As our employees look ahead to the future, they can plan with confidence thanks to a defined benefit pension plan and retirement planning assistance. And, while the future can be full of unknowns, KPU has remained committed to the safety of our entire community, turning to remote work and learning during the pandemic, donating supplies to those on the frontlines, and continuing to engage with staff and students, showing off our resiliency, dedication, and of course, possibilities.

We'd like to thank our incredibly dedicated faculty and staff who work tirelessly, inspiring our students and fellow colleagues and continuing to give back and contribute positively to the communities we serve.

Congratulations to all the 2021 winners.
