Staffing for Canada Week Celebrated June 1 to 7, 2009

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 29 /CNW/ - Temporaries across the country will be
celebrating Staffing for Canada Week from June 1 to 7, 2009! Member companies
of The Association of Canadian Search, Employment & Staffing Services
(ACSESS), their professional staff and field workers will be actively involved
in this celebration.
    Staffing for Canada Week originated in Edmonton in 1980 as "National
Temporaries' Week." It has become widely recognized in both Canada and the
United States, and is supported by local dignitaries, media celebrities and
Canada's political leaders.
    ACSESS is proud of the endorsements received each year from the Prime
Minister of Canada and Provincial Premiers. In 2009, Prime Minister Stephen
Harper has extended the following message to the staffing industry: "Staffing
agencies fill a valuable need in an increasingly complex labour market by
helping businesses quickly locate talent for short or long-term assignments,
offering valuable work experience to young people, or finding new
opportunities for experienced workers," said Harper.
    The purpose of this week is to acknowledge all those employed by an
industry that finds work for over 400,000 Canadians on an annual basis. With
more than 1,300 member offices from Vancouver, B.C. to St. John's
Newfoundland, ACSESS members represent 85 per cent of the total volume of
business in the staffing services industry in Canada. Members are involved in
every service category, from temporary and contract staffing, to professional
