Our Story

NewFound Recruiting was formed in May, 2011 with the goal of using the team’s multiple years’ of experience working for multi-national staffing companies, to create a recruitment firm that encompassed a boutique feel while still maintaining and following industry best practices.

Since it’s inception, NewFound Recruiting has grown to be a market leader in permanent staffing across Canada and is well on it’s way to being a dominant presence in the Canadian Public Sector as well.  NewFound has developed a business model which ensures growth year over year and as such, they won the prestigious OBJ Fastest Growing Company award in 2014.  We take pride in building solid relationships with our clients, based on integrity and respect.
