Offering Relocation Incentives
Getting a Canadian to uproot for a job is like pouring thick maple syrup: eventually it’ll move, but it needs heat to speed things up.
Fewer of us are willing to relocate. The percentage of our country’s population moving between provinces steadily declined since 1977. Today one out of 10 Canadians is readily willing to move for employment-even with all expenses paid and a 10% raise!
Mobility is important if you’re searching non-locally for the best talent. It's also crucial when you need to send staff to work in a different city or region. Without a relocation package in place as an incentive, you may be stuck.
