OTTAWA, April 20, 2016 — Tourism HR Canada and eStaffMatch are pleased to announce a partnership that will see them working towards common goals around addressing labour and skills shortages and increasing participation in Canada’s tourism workforce.

Tourism is a major economic driver and employer in Canada, generating over $88 billion and employing over 1.7 million people, including over 500,000 youth. Many people’s first experience in the workforce is in a tourism occupation, and the flexibility that tourism jobs offer is a major factor in attracting young people to the industry.

Both organizations are committed to giving tourism employees and employers the tools they need to meet peak demands and be successful in an increasingly competitive marketplace: Tourism HR Canada provides training and certification for people starting or building a career in tourism, and eStaffMatch offers an online marketplace designed to help connect service industry staff with employers who need additional workers during peak seasons or to meet the staffing needs of specific events and conferences. With this agreement, each organization will encourage their networks to learn more about the other organization and take advantage of their offerings.

We are proud to partner with eStaffMatch and help connect employers with tourism professionals seeking flexible employment or with individuals looking to supplement their income, says Tourism HR Canada President Philip Mondor. eStaffMatch is an exciting new addition to the Sharing Economy, and their service will allow job seekers, including students and youth, to quickly and easily find meaningful work. With Emerit credentials displayed on the staff’s profile, employers using eStaffMatch can be confident that they will find a true professional that will be a valuable asset in instances where workers are hard to find or regular staffing levels just aren’t enough. This is a major step forward in addressing the unique labour needs of seasonal operators and event organizers.

We are very excited to be partnering with Tourism HR Canada, and look forward to working together to increase participation in Canada’s tourism workforce and to satisfy the needs of the staffing industry, says eStaffMatch CEO, Eropa Stein. The Emerit credentials are a welcome addition to our platform, which strives to always provide high quality and reliable staff. Event organizers who use our service can be certain that the staff they book will embody the excellence and dependability represented by both the Emerit and eStaffMatch brands. We view this partnership as a benefit, not just to eStaffMatch and Tourism HR Canada, but to the Canadian tourism industry as a whole.
