Outplacement Services in Canada since 1981.

Compassionate, Professional and Genuinely Helpful Support for Human Resources Teams Nationwide.

Empowering Canadian Job Seekers through their career transition journeys.


We Are Full-Service Outplacement Specialists

The moment an employee is told their services are no longer required, their mind generally turns to the problem of replacing their income.  For most people, having to navigate today’s fast-moving job market by themselves is a lonely and frustrating prospect.  

The goal of our full-service outplacement programs is to provide meaningful, practical and personalized assistance to keep one’s time between jobs to the minimum by providing personal coaching, practical job search strategies and financial counselling support.

Ultimately, at CMS we are in the 'helping business' and every member of our team feels personally responsible for the work we do for our candidates and the HR Managers who introduce them to us. We are all fully aware that our candidates’ success is also our success and reputation and we work vehemently to protect both.

Louise and her team of have a difficult job of supporting organizational restructures and terminations.
