    This contract was awarded to:

    Lee Hecht Harrison Knightsbridge Corp.

    CDIC has in the past drawn heavily upon temporary staffing services to meet increased resource demands. These demands are variable and may be tied to the economic environment which could result in the need to increase CDIC’s regular staff complement to meet priorities and objectives identified in its Corporate Plan, and to meet its mandate. 

    For recruitment services, CDIC is always on the look out for experienced and talented additions to the organization that reflect the full range of diversity within Canadian society. CDIC regularly uses recruitment and search services to augment its own outreach and recruitment activities. In addition, CDIC uses recruitment and search services to identify unique and specialized skillsets not readily available in the market.
