Contingent workforce management

Our contingent workforce management service delivers the best talent, CRA compliance, fast and efficient onboarding, and comprehensive resource management.

Using independent contractors (ICs) is attractive to business not only for the specialist knowledge they often contribute but also the flexibility the arrangement provides, particularly in terms of short-term scopes of work. But using ICs can expose your business to a range of risks that you may not be aware of, particularly around credential validation and eligibility to engage as an independent contractor.

We ensure your contractors are vetted and comply with all legal requirements. This is a two-stage process

Ensuring compliance

We ensure your contractors are vetted and comply with all legal requirements. This is a two-stage process:


  1. Initially, we carry out a structured qualification process based on CRA (Canada Revenue Agency) criteria. The objectives are to determine an appropriate classification, and to provide input and guidance with the goal of ensuring the IC becomes compliant.
  2. Once a determination has been made, the second step is to validate all appropriate documentation, typically including the following:
     
    • Education or trade verification
    • Professional status
    • Prior employment verification
    • Business references
    • Valid GST registration, limited company
    • Validate WCB compliance and operating insurances
    • Completed and signed Independent Contractor agreement
    • Ongoing monitoring of documentation
