Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is one of Canada's Top 100 Employers

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Canada  is proud to have been named one of Canada’s Top 100 Employers, as announced this morning in The Globe and Mail. MSF is the world's leading independent international medical emergency relief organization, implementing and managing medical projects in over 65 countries worldwide. 

MSF was chosen as a Top 100 employer in Canada thanks to our engaging employment philosophy, as well as organizational investments in the health and well-being of our staff, flexible personal leave options and subsidized programs for continuous learning and development.

“MSF attracts highly motivated people who are committed to helping alleviate suffering around the world, whether it be directly in the field or by working in our office,” explains Tiffany Moore, Human Resources director for MSF Canada. “We value that our staff give back in many ways, such as in their own communities and through their dedication to MSF’s lifesaving work. This creates a strong collegial atmosphere in our office. As an employer we don't take that for granted, we want to provide a level of support that matches their commitment by providing an engaging work experience, one that inspires them to join our movement, supports them to grow and also motivates them to stay and build a career with us.”

Thanks to their adherence to MSF’s values, our staff members help connect Canadians to the humanitarian crises we respond to around the world. They do this not only by working on the front-lines of MSF’s emergency medical interventions themselves, but also by developing our advocacy campaigns, raising funds and creating innovative programming that helps MSF better meet the needs of our patients in the field. They also recruit the qualified Canadian professionals MSF requires to help us deliver lifesaving emergency medical care to people made vulnerable by crisis and conflict.

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is the world's leading independent international medical relief organization, with medical projects in over 65 countries. MSF doctors, nurses, logisticians, field project managers and many other professionals work together to deliver emergency medical and humanitarian relief in regions affected by epidemics, conflict or natural disasters. MSF is guided by the principles of humanity, neutrality, impartiality and independence, with over 90 per cent of MSF’s fundraising revenue coming from private individual donors from around the world. Together with office and field staff, donors, volunteers, partners and supporters, we create the global movement of Doctors without Borders.
