Actyl Group Issues Statement on Misquoting and Misrepresentation
of Facts in CBC News Story
'Go Public' piece included inaccuracies on the work of the firm in recruiting
skilled, hard-working international job candidates.
EDMONTON, Alberta, Canada (April 16, 2014) -- On April 14, 2014, as part of its "Go
Public" series, CBC News published an article and video on the hiring of temporary
foreign workers in Canada, specifical y in the western provinces. The article detailed
alleged accounts of discrimination against Canadian employees in favor of international
In one portion of the article, CBC News's Kathy Tomlinson reported on Actyl Group's
role in recruiting international workers, misquoting President and CEO Linda West and
including number of inaccuracies. One of the biggest errors was that Actyl does not
work with the Victoria company featured in the article.
Actyl Group has issued the fol owing statement from West regarding the article:
"From its inception, Actyl Group has always been a no-fee charging company, which
means that employers who use our services pay our recruiting service fees - and no
one else. We take great pride in offering life-changing opportunities to people, including
both Canadian and international job candidates, as well as helping Canadian
businesses grow and hire more skil ed employees. We have a wonderful team of
professionals who operate with the highest level of integrity that is at the core of
everything they do.
Considering this, we were extremely disappointed that Canada's national public
broadcaster, the CBC, would misrepresent facts and misquote me personally, altering
the meaning of what I said as I described the work of the Actyl team. The fact remains
that we always do our best to recruit Canadian workers first, turning to international
candidates when we do not receive an adequate number of applications to fill needed
positions. We hope this sets the record straight on our company's role in helping
businesses throughout Canada grow and thrive."
