hiregood employs people who face barriers to the formal job market. Many of our employees are experiencing homelessness or poverty. We provide on-site training, mentorship, and we pay a living wage to our employees to help to break the cycle of poverty.
What we do
Hiregood is a social enterprise owned by Boyle Street Community Services, a charity organization in Edmonton that provides services to people experiencing homelessness and poverty.
Our employees, or "Helping Hands," are a patchwork made up of members of the Boyle Street community, some who face barriers to employment or are experiencing homelessness and poverty.
We hire youth, adults, and seniors. Our Helping Hands are competent, driven individuals excited to have meaningful work and purposeful employment. Every team of Helping Hands will be guided by an experienced mentor who will be there to ensure that the task is completed correctly, safely, and promptly.
So how does this social enterprise work? The money that Hiregood makes gets reinvested into our business and community, allowing us to support our environment, clients, and Helping Hands.
Who we are
Our teams are comprised of Helping Hands, who are experienced, reliable, and friendly but face barriers to employment. In addition, we use a mentor model, meaning that our Helping Hands have on-site supervisors to ensure the job is done correctly and provide on-the-job training.
Here’s where you get involved: by hiring us, you’re giving our workers and their mentors incredible opportunities for meaningful employment — and, most importantly, a sense of purpose.
Our Helping Hands are paid a living wage and are covered by WCB insurance, and Boyle Street Ventures Inc. is a fully insured social enterprise recognized by Buy Social Canada. We’ve been doing this for nearly a decade; let us show you how good we are!
"I just want to say that I hired Boyle Street’s junk removal services and I was elated at how fast and how much junk they helped me get rid of! Will definitely hire again for my next wave of decluttering my garage."
