The Challenge Canada Faces
Canada, like all industrialized countries, has an aging population. According to demographic projections, the proportion of seniors in Canada is expected to increase rapidly until 2031, when all Baby Boomers will have reached 65. As this generation ages, the demand for caregivers will become even greater.
Meeting a Critical Need
Eos Global Recruiting was founded to meet this growing need and serve as a trusted resource to Canadian long-term care providers for high quality foreign caregivers. Based in Vietnam, we recruit, vet and build up educated, English-speaking, Vietnamese caregivers and facilitate their immigration to Canada. And our involvement doesn’t end there.
We land the recruit, arrange housing and provide support for the first year to ensure a happy and successful adjustment to life as a caregiver in Canada. Finally, we refine the vetting and training for each successive round of workers your agency recruits, using feedback from the previous round to deliver workers who are matched to your exacting specifications.
The concept for Eos Global Recruiting was developed by Britt Leidig and Josh Godin, whose experience and qualifications precisely dovetail with operating an international caregiver organization.
Britt is a third-generation Registered Nurse and healthcare professional who spent 8 years on the front lines of urgent care as staff and charge nurse for Providence Health and Services in Washington and Oregon, U.S. Her experiences and deep family tradition in nursing ultimately led her to the path of passionate clinical educator and RN quality manager.
Josh is an American Canadian and lifelong entrepreneur who co-founded AsiaWise, an immigration company in China in which he helped over 240 families immigrate to the United States via the EB-5 immigrant investor program. Prior to founding AsiaWise, he facilitated $55 million in EB5 fundraising as China Region General Manager of the Cleveland International Fund, which made U.S. immigration possible for 110 families.

A Win for Everyone
By developing an innovative way to recruit and train caregivers who have a passion for helping the elderly or disabled, we offer a solution that is a win for all parties:
The patient receives high quality care from a well-trained, compassionate and dedicated caregiver.
The employer has access to a pipeline of trusted recruits who arrive ready and eager to work. International nurses we recruit to be caregivers will be strongly motivated to stay in their jobs as they adjust to life in Canada and in most cases pursue further education. Successful, lasting placements increase agency efficiency and profitability.
The Vietnamese recruit has a unique opportunity to live in a new country and work in a gratifying job as a caregiver. He or she has the life-changing opportunity to pursue their dreams and put their passion to work in Canada.
