Unlike other HR outsourcing firms, The Payroll Edge acts as the “Employer of Record” (EOR) for the Canadian workers. Canadian workers are seen as employees of The Payroll Edge, with all Canadian government remittances and thoroughly documented paper trails ensuring compliance as part of the comprehensive Payroll Edge service offering. With packages that include employee benefits and employer sponsored retirement plans, a foreign firm’s Canadian workforce can enjoy all the benefits of their global counterparts with mitigated risk.
The Payroll Edge fulfills the great need of global firms challenged by not having access to a reliable source of accurate, up-to-date, knowledgeable advice about Canadian employment regulations and protocols.

As one of the largest Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) in Canada, The Payroll Edge offer seamless workforce expansion into Canada without the daunting task of understanding foreign employment compliance.
