Building a Remote Team in Canada

Businesses can build a remote work hub in Canada using a global EOR provider like Justworks EOR without stepping foot in the country. 

An EOR is responsible for local HR processes, such as: 

  • Maintaining compliance with local employment laws and other regulations

  • Drafting employment contracts in the correct language

  • Managing payroll and taxes, including withholdings and deductions payments

  • Administering local benefits, such as private health insurance 

  • Registering with the local social security system in the specific Canadian province, foreign tax authorities, and other government institutions

  • Offering support and navigating sticky situations, including terminations and severance (layoffs in the US are much different than layoffs in Canada)

On top of all that, Justworks EOR connects you with local experts who can offer hyper-local insights into Canada helping you keep your business compliant.
