Metro Vancouver, B.C. - Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) has once again been chosen as one of province's top employers.

Access to campus amenities, online and in-house training and development, and a culture that encourages a healthy work-life balance were a few of the reasons highlighted by Mediacorp staff editors as to what makes KPU a great place to work.

Since 2007, the university has consistently made the British Columbia's Top Employers list, which recognizes employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional places to work. Candidates are evaluated based on physical workplace, work atmosphere, benefits, employee communications, training and skills development, and community involvement, among other criteria.

The 2015 winners were announced in a special magazine published by The Vancouver Sun, available here.

Four campuses—Richmond, Surrey, Cloverdale and Langley—offer a comprehensive range of sought-after programs, including business, liberal arts, science, design, health, trades and technology, horticulture, and academic and career advancement. Over 19,000 students annually have a choice from over 124 programs, including bachelor’s degrees, associate degrees, diplomas, certificates citations and apprenticeships. Learn more at
