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’.



With a professional recruiting firm, you are no longer seeking the closest to qualified applicant from those who managed to find your online job post. Instead, you’re picking from a pool of thoroughly qualified applicants for the absolute best, most appropriate prospective employee to add to your team. The process no longer is one of setting important proficiencies as far-off ideals. 

With StaffQuest,  you can count on your 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 liasion 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 Employers.
