A passion for talent

We help candidates and employers find their right match. People are at the center of what we do.  

Our goal is to propel organizations forward by placing talented professionals who can help get them there.



It is the foundation of everything we do. You can expect honesty, consistency and a relationship based on trust when partnering with us - and we expect the same from you.


Diversity is a critical ingredient for business success. You can expect a diverse slate of talent throughout our search, presenting professionals rich in experience, accomplishments and backgrounds. We value the overall education and experience our candidates have acquired both locally and globally.


We value relationships that are cemented on trust and respect. In order for the process to go smoothly and for candidates to remain engaged, this means we require a high level of transparency around the challenges of the role.



Early adopters of enhanced candidate experience

In 2005, Integria was launched with an intent to disrupt the archaic and typical agency recruitment model. A new model was built giving equal consideration to both candidates and employers and focused on delivering a slate of diverse candidates. Our vision of representing the talent and the organization as equal clients in the recruitment equation is unparalleled. Integria has since successfully placed talent across a variety of industries and organizations, from fast growing SMEs to blue chip companies.

Our partners

We are passionate about people, about community and helping individuals and organizations thrive. As talent leaders, we have the responsibility of creating and nurturing new opportunities for underserved members in our community and beyond.

Integria Consulting Bursary
Established in 2021 by Samantha Bateman, Bachelor of Arts Graduate, 1997, in gratitude for the support and education she received at McGill. 
In partnership with McGill University, we launched a bursary program for one or more undergraduate students entering any program at McGill University. The bursary is awarded by the Scholarships and Student Aid Office on the basis of demonstrated financial need and good academic standing. We are keen to give back to the student community as cost should never be a barrier to achieving full academic potential.

Gifts for Good
Every end of year, as the Holiday season approaches, our network comes together to select, wrap and drop off personalized gifts to members of underserved communities. We partner with the following organizations that support and accompany vulnerable children and women in achieving better outcomes. The Gifts for Good initiative was launched in 2012 (formerly Christmas Angels) and has since increased fivefold its direct support to youth and women.   


Chez Doris responds to the needs of women in precarious circumstances by offering a broad range of services in a safe, caring and nonjudgmental environment. These include meals, respite, clothing, socio-recreational activities as well as practical assistance.


The Native Women’s Shelter offers support and frontline services to First Nations, Inuit and Métis (Aboriginal) women and children to promote their empowerment and independence. It is the only women’s shelter in Montreal that provides services exclusively to Aboriginal women and their children.


The Fondation helps more than 2,800 children living in precarious conditions. These youth have been neglected, abandoned or have been victims of psychological, physical or sexual violence. Thanks to the Fondation, these children receive the fundamental support that a parent would normally provide: taking part in sports and cultural activities, access to healthcare, school financing and any other form of support essential to their self-fulfilment.
