Temporary employees and candidates together with industry professionals from across the country will be celebrating Staffing for Canada Week from June 4-10, 2017.
First introduced in Edmonton in 1980 as “National Temporaries’ Week”, this celebration has become widely recognized in both Canada and the United States, based on the dramatic growth in the numbers of contract and temporary workers contributing to the skilled labour force in all industry sectors.
The annual event is celebrated by members of the Association of Canadian Search, Employment and Staffing Services to acknowledge the more than 400,000 people who are employed in the staffing profession in Canada. ACSESS members represent 85 percent of the staffing volume in Canada.
ACSESS is the single voice for promoting best practices and ethical standards for the recruitment, employment and staffing services industry in Canada. Its members provide a key service to businesses and offer a broad range of career coaching, planning and employment opportunities to their clients.
