Where social responsibility meets employment

EMBERS Staffing

EMBERS Staffing is Canada’s multiple award-winning and socially responsible staffing agency that connects companies with workers. We are passionate about our work. Our mission is to create economic opportunities for people – one person, one job, one day at a time. A job is much more than the work itself; it provides income, a sense of belonging, purpose, and a chance to rebuild a life.
