NSHRF is pleased to announce that it has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Atlantica Canada 2016. This survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers in Atlantic Canada, benefiting the region's economy, workforce and businesses.

Companies from across the region entered the two-part survey process to determine the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Atlantic Canada, analyzed the data and determined the final rankings.

The Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation was recognized and honoured at the Best Places to Work in Atlantic Canada awards ceremony coordinated by Progress magazine on June 9th and will be profiled in a special publication by Progress magazine in Vol.23 No.02 (distribution in June).


On the evening of June 20th, NSHRF is hosting a one hour public event with world-renowned health thought leader and chair of the World Health Innovation Network, Dr. Anne Snowdon. Register Now
