For the seventh consecutive year, Cameco (TSX: CCO; NYSE: CCJ) has been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers in a national competition organized by Mediacorp Canada Inc. and published in The Globe and Mail.
The annual competition recognizes Canadian employers that lead their industries in offering exceptional workplaces.
“This recognition is important for the Cameco team,” said Cameco president and CEO Tim Gitzel. “We know that it’s a designation that potential employees take seriously and we are proud of the accomplishment.”
