Recruitment Services in Canada
Having been operational in Canada for over 20 years, NES Fircroft has become a key recruitment partner to energy companies across the country providing full compliant payroll and staffing solutions to all 10 provinces across Canada. Our recruitment services include contract staffing, retained search, executive search and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) where companies can outsource all or part of their recruitment function to us.
Our experienced Canadian teams include discipline-specific recruitment experts, dedicated compliance staff and health & safety specialists, award-winning payroll teams and assignment support professionals.
We’ve hired in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and more, placing specialist personnel from Vancouver to Halifax. Our access to the technical talent pool is unrivalled whether you’re looking for technical personnel of your next Board member. As a team we're on the ground where our clients and candidates need us most and work together to ensure quick and effective recruitment practises, with smooth onboarding for all parties. We're able to support T4 contractors as well as incorporated companies. Together, our teams ensure that new starters arrive for their new role efficiently and compliantly.
In 2015 we further strengthened our footprint in Canada though the purchase of Sure Flow Consulting Services (1992) Inc. and Sure Flow Oilfield Services Inc. Based in Bonnyville, Alberta, this office specializes within the operations sectors of oil and gas, covering a full suite of services from Consultancy - to provide drilling, completions and well supervision personnel - to oilfield services providing operators, power engineers and construction personnel.
Our expertise extends far beyond oil & gas however; we’ve supported businesses in the power generation, wind, solar, energy storage, hydropower, nuclear and mining industries by connecting them to specialist engineers and technical talent pools. Within the power market, our client portfolio comprises independent power producers, EPCs, developers, OEMs, engineering consultancies, construction companies and clean tech organisations. Our recruiters are discipline-specific to stay close to their markets, including trends and people movement.
We’re COR® certified - endorsed by the Canadian Federation of Construction Safety Associations (CFCSA) to evidence our commitment to contractor health and safety. This certification provides us with an effective tool to assess the health and safety management system on contractor sites.
We recruit for the entire project lifecycle across multiple disciplines, including but not limited to:
- Construction & Commissioning
- Drilling & Completion
- Operations and Maintenance
- Project Controls
- Project Support

The Canadian energy sector covers the entire value chain, from upstream production to downstream end use in conventional and unconventional oil / natural gas extraction and processing, including the power generation and distribution sector. With an abundance of low-cost feedstock, significant midstream infrastructure capacity and a provincial diversification program, there are also significant growth opportunities expected within the power, renewables, carbon capture, hydrogen and petrochemical sectors as Alberta leads the way for the country’s diversification and carbon reduction initiatives.
In particular, the economic downturn resulting from the global coronavirus pandemic has led to the Government of Canada taking measures to support Canadians and businesses experiencing hardships by launching the “COVID-19 Economic Response Plan.” We are a qualified personnel supplier for government abandonment projects across several Canadian provinces including Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia.
With offices in Calgary, Bonnyville, Oakville and St Johns, we are perfectly placed to help candidates enhance their careers across all facets of the energy and engineering spectrum in Canada.
