“PEO Canada is a great choice for new companies opening a business in Canada. Their knowledge of Canadian employment law and payroll regulations is of immense help for someone opening a branch of a foreign company in Canada. The availability of PEO employees to support and answer questions is fantastic.” – Peter F.

Solutions Provided

Our solution included payroll processing, HR support, group benefits, and workers compensation assistance. As part of our HR support, we helped the client onboard and off-board employees, implement an HR manual, and coordinate maternity and parental leave policies.


We collaborated closely with the General Manager. Weekly  meetings were instrumental in addressing issues as they arose and guiding the client in establishing and growing their business. The client’s trust in PEO Canada’s expertise allowed them to conduct business in Canada with confidence, knowing they were fully compliant in a market that was entirely new to them. Our hands-on partnership has paved the way for a successful expansion. Starting with only one employee in Canada, the company has expanded to 40+ Canadian team members, and continues to grow with our assistance.
