We’re pleased to announce that the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto (CAST) has been recognized as one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers for 2024 by Mediacorp Canada Inc., organizers of the annual Canada’s Top 100 Employers project. Our Agency has been honoured as a Top Employer since 2013.

CAST is grateful to be a recipient of this accolade which celebrates organizations with exceptional human resources programs and innovative work environments. Top employer applicants are reviewed on eight criteria: workplace; work atmosphere & social; health, financial & family benefits; vacation & time off; employee communications; performance management; training & skills development; and community involvement.

The 2024 Greater Toronto Top Employers are profiled in a special Globe and Mail online magazine, and the CAST profile can be found here.

As shared by Colin Hill, CAST’s Interim Chief Human Resources Officer, “If employees feel they are being nurtured and supported, it increases their engagement and satisfaction. It also enables them to be successful in their current role, achieve their goals and pursue their career aspirations.”

In the past 18 months, our Agency has implemented various initiatives to elevate our training and career development programs for employees. This includes the introduction of new peer learning groups, Supervisor orientation training, and an internship program designed to refine the expertise of senior child protection workers.

This prestigious recognition as a top employer underscores the commitment and hard work demonstrated by our Agency and staff. Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all the CAST staff for their dedication which contributed significantly to this accolade. Together, we continue to strive to build a city where children are safe, families are strong, and communities are supported.
