(Mediacorp), including Canada's Greenest Employers, Canada's Best Diversity Employers and Manitoba's Top Employers. These latest recognitions follow IGM having been recognized by Mediacorp as one of Canada's Top 100 Employers for 2024 last November.

"We're deeply honoured that we have once again been acknowledged as a Top Employer of Canada in a variety of categories, each of which reflects our efforts to build a unique and progressive workforce where employees feel valued, supported and respected," said James O'Sullivan, President and CEO, IGM Financial.

Over the past year, IGM has continued to prioritize its employee experience in a number of areas.

The Canada's Greenest Employers award recognizes companies that spotlight sustainability throughout their organization. This is the first year that IGM has received this recognition, highlighting its dedication to workplace sustainability, which includes initiatives such as Zero Emissions Day, Declutter Month and clean-up activities across the country.

For the second year in a row, IGM has been named one of Canada's Best Diversity Employers, recognizing its efforts to grow a diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment. The company has engaged more than 500 employees as members of Business Resource Groups (BRG) that drive organizational change, signed the Women in Capital Markets Parental Leave Pledge and delivered a People Leader Guide to support the creation and activation of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) related objectives.

IGM has also been recognized as one of Manitoba's Top Employers for the third consecutive year. IGM and IG Wealth Management are both headquartered in Winnipeg, each with a rich history in the province and an equal dedication to supporting the local communities in which they operate.
