Recognized as one of National Capital Region's Top Employers (2022):

Here are some of the reasons why Egg Farmers of Canada was selected as one of National Capital Region's Top Employers (2022):

  • In the past year, Egg Farmers of Canada doubled its annual egg donation to Food Banks Canada and worked with Breakfast Club of Canada to distribute 60,000 coupons for a dozen eggs to families across Canada (in place of its traditional support for breakfast programs in schools) -- the organization also encourages employee volunteerism, providing two paid days off each year to volunteer
  • Egg Farmers of Canada supports employees with young families, providing maternity leave top-up payments for new mothers (to 70 per cent of salary for up to two weeks), followed by a parental top-up for new mothers, fathers and adoptive parents (up to 15 weeks)
