February 28, 2023 – Telefilm Canada is delighted to be named one of Montreal’s Top Employers of 2023, as announced today by MediaCorp Canada Inc. This is the first time that the organization has been recognized.
“As an employer of choice, Telefilm strives to provide our employees across the country a workplace that reflects our company values: integrity, courage, respect, competence, and accountability,” said Francesca Accinelli, Interim Executive Director and CEO. “This award recognizes the strides we’ve made to modernize Telefilm, and it reflects what many of us already know: Telefilm is a great place to work.”

We are very proud of these results which confirm that we are on the right track.”
Montreal’s Top Employer competition recognizes a select number of organizations each year, as chosen by MediaCorp Canada Inc., publisher of Canada’s Top 100 Employers annual list. Employers are compared to other organizations in their field to determine which offer the most progressive and forward-thinking programs.
