Our Mission

To empower Canadian companies with the world's best IT talent.

Why recruit globally with AffinityInternational:

IT Supply / Demand

With almost 75,000 tech jobs currently unfilled in Canada, the gap in IT labour supply and talent available has never been wider. AffinityInternational has developed a distributed global recruitment engine capable of connecting you with millions of IT contractors, and employees looking to relocate to Canada from around the world.

Quality Talent Pool

When it comes to highly niche & technical roles like architects, developers, security experts and many others, the Canadian talent pool is particularly stretched. AffinityInternational connects you with the world’s brightest minds and uses technical screening assessments, references and other tools to validate you’re being connected with the world’s best.

Cost Effective

With Canada’s decades-high inflation rate and IT the labour supply/demand imbalance, IT labour costs are rising sharply. Going offshore can help you meet your budget and reduce your costs by up to 50%.

Reduce Attrition

At 13.2%, the cost of IT attrition in Canada is greater than in any other sector. AffinityInternational will help you control your attrition by tying incentives to consultants completing contracts and, in cases where IT talent has relocated, we’ll help you develop an employer-specific work visa.

Diversity

AffinityInternational is supporting our clients with consultants working in South America, Africa, Asia, Europe and Central America. This gives our clients exposure to new business markets, diversity of thought, and the ability to meet the demands of 24hr business day.

Canadian Economy

Canada is looking to grow our economy with 401,000 immigrants in 2022. Help grow Canada's technology sector by growing our pool of technical talent.
