Membership Benefits


Serving the staffing industry since 1962, ACSESS plays a pivotal role in advancing industry standards and best practices.

A primary objective of ACSESS is to actively represent the industry and our membership before governments by providing input on employment legislation and regulations at the national and provincial levels. At the same time, ACSESS assumes a leadership role in ensuring that industry members are aware of legislation and regulatory changes which may (drastically) affect their businesses and responsibilities as employers.

From the standpoint of professional development and industry standards, ACSESS provides and administers the CPC Certification Program. Candidates must meet core requirements which include post-secondary education, length of service in the industry, compliance with the Code of Ethics and testing requirements. On successful completion, these professionals may use the designation CPC (Certified Personnel Consultant).
