We understand work – the best jobs are challenging and provide a working  environment where you can learn and grow. We have years of experience searching for the best career for hundreds of candidates.

We have had the pleasure of serving companies that are serious about achieving success and attribute that success to quality employees. They find them here.

Our Services Include

We are more than just a recruitment firm.  StaffQuest prides itself on offering a comprehensive suite of services.


StaffQuest provides qualified Permanent, Temporary and Temp-to-Hire staffing solutions. We utilize industry leading recruitment software to screen and test qualified candidates in order to fill specific requests. Our specialized selection process ensures that only the most skilled individuals are selected and presented to our clients.

With our Temp-to-Perm option, candidates are also vetting employers and this is a great way for everyone to ‘try before they buy’.  We like to classify it as a ‘working interview’.



Recruiting is a time-consuming and expensive headache. Without the talent channels utilized by a professional recruiter, you end up settling for the closest-to-qualified applicant from those who managed to find your online job post. Not ideal – at all.

StaffQuest consistently delivers a pool of thoroughly qualified applicants for the absolute best, most appropriate prospective employee to add to your team.  You can count on OUR candidates meeting the required skillset for the role you are looking to fill.



We are proud of our Executive Search and Placement division which serves companies seeking top quality talent to fill openings in the Engineering, IT, Finance and Medical professions as well as general placements in mid-to-upper level management. Clients seeking business leaders consult with our team to identify and acquire the top performers from all across Canada.

Recruitment is very much a ‘matching’ process. We are the liason between our clients and our candidates. We are the ‘match-makers’.


Relationships Built on Integrity

StaffQuest works closely with our Candidates and Employers.  We take the time to consider the comfort level of everyone we work with.
We respect their work-style and our lasting relationships prove that.  By listening and taking action, we can accurately match the perfect people with the precise needs of each of our Employer companies.


Our Metrics

Throughout our 27 year history, we have successfully filled thousands of jobs with top quality people!  We have experience with high-volume placements and long-term assignments for 75-175 workers in numerous locations.
