Hire Employees in Canada - Overview

Canada is seen by many growing companies as the ideal launchpad for their North American expansion.With its diversified economy and highly skilled workforce, Canada is a popular destination to build an international team.  

You could do this on your own: Set up a company, register as an employer, then start recruiting and hiring employees in Canada yourself. However, this option is usually time-consuming and can quickly become expensive. Plus, you risk falling foul of Canada’s labor and tax laws. 

When you use an Employer of Record (EOR) like Horizons, you can hire and onboard your new team within 24 hours. As the legal employer, we take care of all aspects of employment compliance for you, including payroll, taxation, and employee benefits such as pension contributions. 

When you choose Horizons, we take the hassle out of hiring in Canada and leave you to focus on your core business operations
