Can employees receive stock options in Canada?

Employers in Canada are not required to offer stock options to their employees but may choose to do so. The vesting schedule accompanying stock options allows employees to retain star employees until full vesting. Stock options are also valuable non-cash awards that encourage high employee performance in start-ups. You can consult your PEO provider in Canada to help you roll out employee stock options and manage the administrative logistics of operating a stock option plan.
