Every year Forbes provides official lists of everything from 30 Under 30 to the richest people on earth. Did you know that the organisation also does a list of the best employers in Canada?

Well each year it crafts a gargantuan list of employers, based on a collaboration with Statista that compiles the reviews and opinions of over 8000 Canadians. The results reveal who the best companies to work for are from Vancouver to Newfoundland, and everywhere in between.

Naturally, with Canada being such a massive country and the list being 300 companies long, Mississauga doesn’t take up every spot. In fact, the number one spot belongs to Google, based in Toronto. Number two however, is in fact based in Mississauga, and it’s none other than Kruger Products.

Kruger Products is a tissue manufacturer located at 1900 Minnesota Ct #200. It publishes products like Cashmere toilet paper, Sponge Towels, Purex toilet paper, White Swan napkins, and Scotties tissues.

Second place (for Mississauga) was actually number 18 on the list, and it was Microsoft. The company, located at 1950 Meadowvale Boulevard specialises in IT, internet, software & services. Microsoft is famous for everything from Windows OS to Xbox, a company you’ve probably purchased from at some point or other. You can see all job listings for Microsoft Canada here.

GlaxoSmithKline is not a company name that rolls off the tongue or one you’ve likely heard of, however you’ve probably noticed the logo.

I doubt just anyone could work for GlaxoSmithKline, but if you’re in the field of pharmaceuticals, check out these openings.

General Electric comes in at number four and, as the name suggests, is the world’s foremost digital industrial company.
