Here’s What You Should Know Before Hiring in Canada

Compensation & Benefits

When hiring a new employee in Canada, U.S. employers must factor in costs like contributions to the Canadian Pension Plan (CPP), employment insurance, paid time off and sick leave, onboarding, and additional benefits if you elect to include those. 

Canada has a publicly funded healthcare system meaning Canadian employers don’t need to offer additional health benefits. However, offering additional healthcare options can help you hire more competitively.
