Canadian staffing companies place nearly two million temporary and contract workers—10% of the country’s workforce—in jobs each year, according to the Association of Canadian Search, Employment & Staffing Services (ACSESS). Staffing for Canada Week celebrates these workers and the staffing and recruiting industry, which generates more than $15 billion in revenue annually.

Contingent employees bring immense value to the workforce. Two-thirds (66%) of Canadian companies say they’re willing to hire contingent workers to meet business needs, according to an Express Employment Professionals-Harris Poll survey.

Commemorate this week by celebrating temporary and contract workers and their impact on the industries where they work!
