Hamilton, ON – For the third consecutive year, Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA Ports) has been recognized as one of Hamilton-Niagara’s Top Employers for 2024.

The distinction recognizes HOPA Ports’ commitment to leadership in the marine industry, offering multimodal assets in Hamilton, Oshawa and Niagara, while also supporting employee development and local charitable organizations.

“We’re thrilled to be named one of Hamilton-Niagara’s Top Employers for the third consecutive year,” said Larissa Fenn, VP of Corporate Affairs at HOPA Ports. “Every member of our team makes a contribution to Canada’s economy and the stewardship of working waterfronts in our Great Lakes port cities.”

HOPA Ports was also selected for its unwavering commitment to fostering an inclusive, collaborative, and innovative workplace environment.

“More than an award, this is a celebration of our remarkable employees who show up everyday, inspired and motivated, to make HOPA Ports an extraordinary place to work,” continued Fenn.

“Hamilton-Niagara’s Top Employers recognize that their employees have lives outside of work and understand the importance of accommodating employees when extra flexibility is needed,” adds Kristina Leung, managing editor at Mediacorp. “Whether it’s allowing staff to leave early some days or adjusting work schedules so they can complete an academic course or skills development program, this year’s Hamilton-Niagara winners lead the way in creating better workplaces in a region that’s outperforming most of the province.”

Employers were evaluated by the editors recognizing employers with exceptional human resources programs and forward-thinking workplace policies in the Hamilton-Niagara area. Editors at Mediacorp review employers on eight criteria, which have remained consistent since the project’s inception.
