Our Name

The selection of the name Callière was the result of historic inspiration. The former Governor of Montreal, Louis-Hector de Callière, was of the formidable contributors to the countries growth. When Louis-Hector arrived at Montreal in 1684 the population of this frontier community was about 1,000 strong. Contraband and fraud thrived, regulated fur trade was non-existent, the town was hygienically unsound, and the Iroquois were not looking to be at peace with the newcomers.

In the ten years Louis-Hector spent in Montreal, he played a significant role in the military protecting the region from foreign assaults. As Governor, Louis-Hector was celebrated for having negotiated the Great Peace between the Iroquois and the Europeans, and thereby facilitating the growth of the country to continue relatively unabated.

The nature of our business, and in effect our primary modus operandi is to contribute uniformly to the employer and candidate’s strategic and successful growth. We achieve this by expertly exploring both the ambitions of the individual and that of the corporation. We then methodically negotiate bringing together complementary professionals in order to ensure that the team as a whole is moving in a progressive uniform direction. When this occurs, typically those involved are contributing to one another’s growth in a symbiotic manner resulting in their ultimate success.

Ideally, for our clients, our services are not called on due to crisis scenarios. However, the reality is we are often called on when difficult time-sensitive situations present themselves, and we enthusiastically return the call head-on.
