In Canada’s National Capital Region (NCR), Thales Canada had been recognized as a beacon of excellence in employment. This innovative company has secured its place as one of the top employers in the region, promising a bright future for both its current and prospective employees.
With plans to bolster its workforce by up to 100 engineers over the next five years, Thales Canada isn’t just hiring; it’s investing in talent and nurturing growth.

The prestigious Canada’s Top 100 Employers competition has duly recognized Thales as a key player in the NCR’s employment landscape. But what exactly does Thales bring to the table?

This recognition as a Top Employer in the NCR is a testament to a culture of innovation, and a call to people passionate about serving those who serve to build a better future,” expressed Chris Pogue, CEO, Thales Canada.
