The 10 tech companies that employ the most people in BC

Posted by Knowlton Thomas

In this still-uncertain economy, jobs are valuable. Many companies have downsized at least once over the past three years. So it's good to know that here in BC, we've got plenty of companies who employ hundreds of us, even thousands of us. Using data compiled by Business in Vancouver, I've listed the 10 tech companies employing the most people in BC. I also identify whether the comapny has downsized from last year, maintained its headcount, or grown its staff.

1. Telus empoys 8,000. (Maintained headcount)

2. Shaw employs 3,600. (Downsized)

3. Rogers employs 2,100. (Downsized)

4. Accenture employs 1,700. (Maintained headcount)

5. Electronic Arts employs 1,200. (Maintained headcount)

6. SAP Canada employs 1,200. (Maintained headcount)

7. Bell Canada employs 1,000. (Maintained headcount)

8. IBM Canada employs 900. (Downsized)

9. MacDonald Dettwiler employs 800. (Maintained headcount)

10. McKesson Medical Imaging employs 700. (Grew)
