TORONTO: May 6, 2015 – Metrolinx has been recognized as one of Canada's Top Employers for Young People for the third consecutive year. This competition recognizes Canada's leaders who effectively attract and retain younger employees to their organizations.

Employers were evaluated based on criteria such as work atmosphere and physical workplace, the availability of co-op or work-study programs, as well as mentorship opportunities and training programs, tuition assistance, to name a few. The average age of employees at each employer was also a consideration.
