Hire Remote Employees in Canada

Canadian Payroll Services is a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) focused on connecting Canadian talent with global business. We make it possible for global businesses of all sizes to hire in Canada without creating a local entity. Our Employer of Record (EOR) and contractor payroll services allow you to hire just one Canadian remote worker or a whole team, without any setup costs or any need to register as a local business.


What Is a PEO/EOR, and
How Can It Help Me Hire in Canada?


What Is a PEO?

A Professional Employer Organization (PEO) offers businesses a “co-employment” solution, managing payroll and benefits. An international client will need to open a local entity in the country they’re hiring from, and open all necessary accounts, then the third-party PEO will managing payroll administration and management from there. Clients will need staff of their own to handle taxes, and may need to approve payroll decisions, but responsibility will fall largely to the PEO.

What Is an EOR?

An Employer of Record (EOR) organization offers similar benefits to a PEO, handling payroll, HR and administration pertaining to the remote overseas workers hired by a business. Unlike a PEO, however, the hiring of remote workers overseas is totally outsourced, so employees are, on paper, employed by the EOR – though the business will be managing the employee on their day-to-day responsibilities. With an EOR, there is no need to open a local entity or tax account, and no local taxes need to be filed.

At Canadian Payroll Service, we offer both PEO and EOR services. You can check out our blog on PEO vs EOR in Canada for more information.

Why Is Having a Local Canadian PEO or EOR So Important?

If you’re looking to hire workers in Canada, it’s likely you’ll want to source assistance through a third-party PEO or EOR. Choosing the right one, however, is crucial; while a global PEO or EOR organization might seem a good choice on paper, local organizations like Canadian Payroll Services often have the edge.

Hiring workers through a global PEO exponentially increases the touchpoints between you and your staff, which can lead to bungled procedures and complications. At CPS, we don’t want to control how you manage your staff, but rather empower you with our knowledge through information and resources. We handle the paperwork and administration so you can focus on managing your team, but we make sure you’re kept up to date with important information and relevant developments.
