So has anyone on lawn site have any experience with this company? Trusting companies to get workers is a pretty big deal for us mid size companies. The cost is getting greater each year and the results are mixed. Can't tell when gov is at fault and when company is at fault for not processing and getting workers.

I know the people from Marcus Drake are good about getting back to people, but be patient...they spend a lot of time travelling out of the country as you might imagine...I'm sure they will get back to you.

It looks like the folks from Marcus Drake are back. They made a post on another thread today. I guess they missed your post. I haven't seen any documentation at all on here from them anytime it has been requested.

Canada

I advised previously that we handle the H2B visas. This is to supply workers for the USA only it is not a Canadian program. I am sorry we cannot help you there.
I am answering from Guatemala where we just finished processing 6 companies a total of 75 workers for the USA. There are many very qualified people here, I hope more members take advantage of our services in the future to get great workers. We have offices in Mexico, Guatemala, Coasta Rica, El Salvador, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. We also process for Ecuador and other locations as needed.

Is this a company you've found that supplies employees kris? I'm having a hard time finding reliable workers in the montreal-west area.
