Staffing for Canada Week

Last week was Staffing for Canada Week.  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.

Our team celebrated with a take out picnic lunch in a park near our Yaletown neighbourhood, then a nice walk along the seawall back to the office. We all enjoyed this fun way to celebrate with our great team of recruiters and staff.

This week is Staffing for Canada Week.

Each year during the first week of June, members and chapters of the Association of Canadian Search, Employment & Staffing Services (ACSESS) acknowledge the outstanding contributions of the many Canadians employed through staffing firms. Letters from the Prime Minister of Canada and Provincial Premiers recognize the key role these individuals play in our country’s continued economic growth and prosperity.

Canadian staffing firms provide a key service to businesses and offer a broad range of career planning and employment opportunities for over 500,000 Canadians every business day. ACSESS members take pleasure in this annual opportunity to celebrate and thank its employees while at the same time benefiting many charities through industry events.
