10 Reasons to join Thomson Reuters in Toronto, Canada

These are exciting times at Thomson Reuters in Canada! Our Legal, Tax & Accounting, and Enterprise Technology & Operations divisions, are expanding to meet the needs of an expanding Canadian economy. We have three offices in Toronto, including our headquarters located on Bay Street, in the heart of the city’s Financial District! Two exciting initiatives in Toronto include our Centre for Cognitive Computing and the Technology Centre. Learn more about the top reasons our employees love working at TR in Toronto. 

1. The location and the view

Two of our offices are located in downtown Toronto, both a short walk from Union Station, which makes it a perfect location for commuters. From either building, you have amazing views of downtown Toronto, especially from the Tech Centre on Bremner where you can see CN Tower, the Rogers Centre, and Lake Ontario. 

2. We’re recognized as a top employer and a great place to work in Canada

Thomson Reuters has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Employers in Canada by The Globe and Mail every year since 2008! In addition, we’ve also been recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in Canada by Great Place to Work® Institute Canada, one of the 50 Best Workplaces in Canada for Women by The Globe and Mail, and one of Greater Toronto’s Top Employers by The Globe and Mail.  

3. Game room

Looking to take a break from your work and connect with colleagues? Employees in Toronto take advantage of our in-office games including foosball and challenging colleagues to a fan favorite: Mario Kart on Wii. 

4. Hackathons 

"On Friday afternoons, we get together and have a mini-hackathon, spending 4 or 5 hours hacking away at whatever interests. It's a lot of fun!" - Greg Olmstead, Lead Software Engineer in Toronto

5. Free snacks

Every morning, snacks are put out and employees race to the kitchen to get their hands on the fresh fruit, trail mix, chocolate-covered raisins and almonds to start their day off right. After lunch, the afternoon snacks are put out and there’s a mad dash to grab the chips, protein bars, and chocolate bars, and you can wash it all down with various drink choices including soda, iced tea, and fruity sparkling water. 

6. Food trucks 

Every day in front of our headquarters at 333 Bay Street, there are various food trucks to choose from. From authentic Mexican food, to funnel cakes, you won’t go hungry. Check out which food trucks are open today! 

7. Connected to the PATH

Our office is connected to the PATH, an underground shopping centre, which is great all times of the year. If it’s too humid and AC is preferred, or too cold and you want to stay warm, our employees enjoy being able to walk downtown, underground.

8. The Toronto Technology Centre

The Thomson Reuters Toronto Technology Centre is made up of a team of scientists, engineers and designers focusing on the development of smart applications by applying and extending state of the art in natural language processing, machine learning, deep learning, information retrieval, knowledge representation and reasoning, data mining, text analytics and human-computer interactions. In 2021, we’ll be moving our Toronto Technology Centre to Duncan Street and our office will feature a collaborative workplace environment designed to promote employee health and wellbeing. It will feature both formal and informal workspaces designed to enable a variety of working styles, supported by state-of-the-art technology, breakout spaces, exterior terraces and food service. The Centre’s amenities will include a café, health club, bicycle room and on-site concierge services.

9. TR Labs and our partnership with the University of Waterloo

In 2015, not far from Toronto, we opened our Waterloo Data and Innovation Lab, located in Communitech, an accelerator in the heart of the region's startup ecosystem. The Lab works closely with the University of Waterloo on research and leverages the school’s elite coop program to bring new ideas and new ways of thinking.

10. Catch an episode of Suits being filmed

The popular, American legal drama TV show, Suits, is often filmed in the lobby of our 333 Bay Street office - this may be your chance at 15-seconds of fame! Check out a recent episode for a preview of our office.
