StaffQuest Was Founded In 1995. This Year, We Proudly Celebrate 27 Years In Business!

How it all Began…

In the first three years we built a solid reputation for providing a level of service focused on a personalized, sincere, hands-on approach. In 1998, based on our successful business model and strategies, we expanded the company to include a full-time recruitment division offering clients a fully balanced solution for all their hiring needs.


Leveraging our flawless integrity has been a key driver for growing our business.  StaffQuest currently provides quality service to hundreds of regional employers.


Today, StaffQuest is dedicated to providing quality service to hundreds of client companies. Fostering partnerships with affiliates has enabled us to actively recruit and place candidates in all disciplines and professions right across Canada.


When special requests are made in order to serve a client better, we aren’t hindered by the red-tape that a large national agency may have to contend with. We can pivot quickly and make immediate decisions, providing instant results.

Our Philosophy

It all starts with QUALITY

We believe the quality of the recruiting process drives the quality of the outcome.  Our staff includes dedicated placement consultants and support staff who have earned the trust and respect of our clients and candidates.

Excellence in service is our highest endeavour, resulting in client and candidate trust and satisfaction as our highest achievement.


The Vision

“Who you are tomorrow, begins with what you do today”    — Tim Fargo

A word from our Founder…

When I moved to Vancouver Island with my family in 1994, we searched for a service that would assist us in finding qualified candidates for our own existing business.

There didn’t appear to be a company that provided us with the same support we used in Vancouver, so I thought to myself, ‘I am going to do the research and see if this is an area that I could become involved in. Maybe I could open-up a business with the emphasis of searching for great quality employees for other companies’. I quickly became convinced that it was a great way to learn about and contribute to, our new community…

A Note For Employers

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


Employers looking to hire new permanent staff look to StaffQuest to greatly shorten the onboarding process.  Our pool of thoroughly qualified applicants provide the absolute best, most appropriate prospective employees to add to virtually any team.



StaffQuest utilizes industry leading recruitment software to screen and test qualified candidates. Our specialized selection process ensures that only the most skilled individuals are selected and presented to our clients for their review. 



We like to refer to “Temping” as a ‘working interview’. With our Temp-to-Perm option, candidates are also vetting employers so this is a great way for everyone to ‘try before they buy’, so to speak. Often times, our temporary staff are offered permanent positons!



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 leadership positions in mid-to-upper level management.
