Ian Martin helps companies succeed by recruiting and hiring engineers, technical staff, and information technology professionals.
Founded by engineers to support the needs of the industry, the Ian Martin Group has been family owned and 100% Canadian since 1957. Since then, we’ve been creating authentic connections around meaningful work. As North America’s most progressive recruitment and project-staffing firm, we specialize in engineering and IT recruiting to help organizations of all sizes hire better.
In 1957, Ian Martin and Mary Masson connected to form a consulting engineering practice. When a building contract was abruptly cancelled in 1959, Ian and Mary responded with an entrepreneurial flexibility that still exemplifies the Ian Martin brand. They contracted out their engineers, helping to complete the Ford Motor plant in Oakville, and giving birth to the Contract Engineering industry in Canada.
Over five decades later, The Ian Martin Group continues to staff dozens of nation-building engineering projects as a family business. Throughout three generations of leadership we have not wavered in our commitment to actualize the human possibility of people connected around meaningful work.
We’re a certified B Corporation, which means we meet comprehensive standards that measure our impact on employees, suppliers, community, and the environment.
To us, stewardship is more than a philosophy, mission statement, or belief; we wanted to put action behind our words. So, in 2011 we became one of Canada’s founding B Corporations.
As a Certified B Corporation (‘B’ stands for ‘Benefit’), we meet the world’s highest standards for positive impact on our employees, customers, community, and the environment.
Certified B Corporations meet higher standards of social and environmental performance. It’s like LEED certification but for a business, not just a building. The outcome is a comprehensive measurement of a company’s impact on its employees, suppliers, community, and the environment.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward one unifying goal: to redefine success in business.
