We provide turnkey recruitment solutions to the Pharmaceutical, Biotech Engineering, and Food Manufacturing sectors, with a broad spectrum of services that span the full recruitment life-cycle.

So, what makes us different? Why would somebody choose to work with us? What added value do we bring to the table?

  • We approach recruitment differently, consistently working toward positive change in the Recruitment industry.
  • Our process, created and optimized over 10 years, focuses on turnkey recruitment. We are Consultants, Business
  • Solution Providers, and Talent Strategists! We personalize our approach for both candidates and clientele, meeting specific needs & building value into every step of the process.
  • Being a small agile company allows us to focus on the crucial aspects of recruiting. Anyone can sift through resumes and find the technical fit, but to assess the ‘intangibles’ and how someone fits, THIS is what we specialize in.
  • We take the time to understand your business, your culture, and your values. We believe to make a good candidate match we need to understand what drives our client’s success, and the types of employees that will thrive within that company culture.

We are changing the industry for the better by leading with new standards for service and collaboration. Breaking the mold takes time, and often the rewards for driving that change take even longer, but that will not stop us from investing in our own processes and driving the change this industry needs.

Aimee Hagerty
Chief Executive Officer

I have always known that I think differently – caring more deeply about the simpler things others easily cast aside. My favourite book as a child was ‘The Giving Tree’ by Shel Silverstein. The values demonstrated through this story became my guiding light. To this day, I approach everything I do with kindness, integrity, dedication, and respect – including my business.

After pursuing a degree in Psychology, I started my career working as an Executive Assistant on Wall Street. After a couple of years, I immigrated to Canada where I settled into Customer Service, IT Help-desk, and Sales. I then obtained a second degree in Medical Transcription, while owning & operating a Standardbred Racing & Breeding stable! None of these seem your typical route into recruitment, but at their core all these industries share one common and underlying principle. The importance of connection. I took to recruitment like a duck to water – creating connections, guiding careers, and above all providing a foundation for people to propel themselves forward. It did not take me long to realize, however, that there was a major misalignment between the recruitment services companies needed and the services they were provided.

When you are different you have two choices. You either conform, or you build on your strengths and break the mould. There was only ever one option for me, and after only 5 years in the industry, I founded EA Associates Inc. to break that mould. My mission was to create a people-first organization that was grounded in partnership and focused on delivering both client and candidate success. Recruitment is my passion, because when it is done right, when it puts people first, it is founded on these very same principles. I am proud to say that my company is flourishing because we put people first.

These same guiding principles of transparency, integrity, dedication, and respect combined with connectivity also drive the other great passion of my life – my support of mental health awareness. Through my own personal experiences, and the shared experiences of friends and family, I have witnessed the significant impact these diseases have wrought on the lives of those that suffer. These impacts seem only to be magnified in the lives of our youth. I have dedicated my life, and by extension the resources of my company EA Associates, to champion this incredibly important cause and help bring relief to those that are suffering.

EA supports

mental health
We actively promote mental health awareness, and are particularly focused on youth in crisis, a demographic for which mental health care is historically underfunded.
We demonstrate our commitment to ending the stigma by making a matching donation of $200 to a mental health and wellness non-profit every time we pay a referral fee, and by actively supporting local initiatives designed to promote mental health.

EA supports

continuous learning
We have established a continuing education program for team members because we believe that lifelong learning drives lifelong change.
