Samsung Electronics Canada has once again been recognized as one of Canada’s Top Employers for Young People in 2021. The annual editorial competition highlights employers who offer the nation’s best workplaces and programs for young people.
Samsung Canada has put in place a variety of initiatives that have earned the company recognition as a leader in attracting and retaining young talent. Highlights include:

The ERG also supports the Samsung Canada annual wellness fair, and raises funds and awareness for Sick Kids through their annual candy-gram fundraiser.
- The Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Challenge, a national educational initiative for Canadian students to apply STEM-related knowledge to find creative solutions to solve challenges in their local communities. Samsung Canada has awarded over $45,000 in cash and technology grants to students across Canada.
- Partnerships with post-secondary institutions including Vancouver Community College to create a Samsung Tech Institute Home Appliance certification course and Centennial College to launch a Mobile Application Development program.
- Hosting a unique challenge that empowers Samsung Canada co-op students to provide solutions or new ideas on a variety of topics such as strategy and marketing. As part of the challenge, students present their proposals to the organization’s leadership team. Winning teams receive prizes, such as Samsung products, and may even see their ideas implemented.
