Further Regulatory Amendments to Ontario’s Temporary Help Agency and Recruiter Licensing Regime

May 1, 2024 | Sherrard Kuzz LLP

As discussed in each of our June 27, 2023 briefing note and November 13, 2023 briefing note, a temporary help agency (“THA”) and/or recruiter operating in Ontario will be required to have a licence to operate as of July 1, 2024.

Responding to concerns from THAs and recruiters, the Ontario Government has enacted regulatory amendments to reduce the financial barriers to an organization obtaining a licence.[1]  These include:

  1. Changes to the type of security required to obtain a licence.
  2. Eliminating the requirement for a single organization to provide duplicate application fees and security in order to obtain both a THA and recruiter licence.
  3. Exempting certain recruiters from the requirement to provide security as a condition to becoming licensed.
