Introducing PEO in Canada
Canada enjoys a strong economy, with a GDP per capita of GDP 46,194 and the ninth-highest economic freedom score globally in 2020, ahead of the United States. This score is the result of Canada’s open markets, regulatory efficiency, government size, and the rule of law—all of which make the nation a promising destination for companies looking to expand their footprint abroad. The robust Canadian economy is based largely on automotive and other manufacturing, minerals, and petroleum extraction and refinement.
Canada is culturally, linguistically, and geographically diverse, with both French and English as its national languages. Canada is the largest nation in the world by land mass and therefore hosts pockets of urbanization in an otherwise largely rural country. Efficient naturalization policies also make Canada an attractive destination for foreign workers.
A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) can simplify the process of doing business in Canada. A PEO can hire, onboard, payroll, and administratively manage your employees in the country, assuming liability and keeping your employment practices in compliance with national and local laws.
