List of Licensed Recruiters

  • Recruiters of foreign workers must hold a recruiter licence from Labour Standards to provide recruitment services. Note: employers who do their own recruitment work do not need a recruiter licence, however they will need an employer registration certificate from Labour Standards.
  • Employers who want to use a foreign worker recruiter must use a licensed recruiter.
  • Recruiters and employers cannot charge a worker, directly or indirectly, fees for assisting in finding the worker employment. This rule applies to all workers (i.e., both foreign workers and workers who are not foreign workers).
  • Recruiters and employers must keep and maintain records relating to the recruitment of foreign workers for at least three years after the records are made.

Below is a list of licensed recruiters in Nova Scotia. These are the only recruiters who are allowed to recruit foreign workers for employers in Nova Scotia. Please contact Labour Standards if you have questions.
