IVEY Group partnered with Lively-based manufacturing company Carriere Industrial Supply (CIS) over a year ago to support their labour force growth initiatives via international recruitment. Together, we found, recruited and integrated six skilled Welders from Mexico to help fill labour shortages in their shop. Our international recruits Irvin, Miguel, Jorge, Jesus, Ismael, Jasso and Jesus, have been settled into their new workplace for over a year and continue to work and thrive in Canada.

“The addition of foreign workers has provided more cultural diversity to our workforce. With diversity, we achieved a sharing of different perspectives, skills and techniques that continues to benefit all employees.” - Mickey Obradovich, General Manager, Carriere Industrial Supply 

As a full-service international recruitment and corporate immigration firm, we source internationally skilled workers for Canadian companies like CIS. Reflecting on how IVEY Group’s recruitment services have positively impacted local employers and workers from across the globe has been especially rewarding.

“A year and a half ago, we were fortunate in hiring six foreign workers through IVEY Group to augment our production staff. These workers arrived with great enthusiasm and energy anxious to work and contribute to our workforce. They have been very appreciative of the opportunity to work for CIS in Canada and are in the process of applying for permanent residency. By assisting in their efforts to immigrate to Canada, we feel that these workers will make their career here at CIS for the long-term." - Dale Alexander, Controller, Carriere Industrial Supply

Partnering with IVEY Group has allowed CIS to:

  • Grow their workforce with the most skilled workers worldwide;
  • Save costs related to turnover, retention & training, and;
  • Receive individualized services to reflect their hiring needs paired with guaranteed satisfaction with our services and their new employees.

From start to finish, we managed the entire recruitment and immigration process to ensure a smooth integration for CIS and their new employees.

“I immigrated to Sudbury from Mexico to work as a Welder for CIS. I have been working for over a year and a half, and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. Working in Canada has changed my life because I have more opportunities, I am gaining more experience in my field, improving my language skills, and I feel more like myself and professional” - Irvin, Welder, Carriere Industrial Supply

Our mission at IVEY Group is to help top Canadian companies such as CIS to find, recruit and integrate qualified workers into their local operations. Whether you’re looking for Welders, HEM’s, Electricians, Miners, Construction workers, or more, our team of recruitment and immigration specialists will bring the best workers from across the globe directly to you.

It’s no secret that hiring the best workers for the job is a challenging and time-consuming process. Instead of wasting time, money, and resources trying to find workers for your business, we recommend that you opt for a more streamlined and efficient approach with IVEY. We will manage the entire recruitment and immigration process so that you can focus on what matters most: your business.

This past year has been increasingly difficult for various industries due to COVID-19. As a direct result, many businesses are experiencing difficulties recruiting the skilled workers needed to fulfill their labour needs. These labour force shortages have led to unfulfilled client orders, declining competitiveness, deteriorating product and service quality, and an overall decline in growth.

IVEY Group seeks to resolve the above issues by adapting and recruiting differently. In particular, we trust that incorporating international recruitment as your hiring solution ensures that your business continues to prosper even during critical times.
