Our Story
Pricing Subheading 2 Underline

From law to tech

Our founders first met as colleagues at a national law firm—each of us practicing in legislation-heavy areas and developing a deep understanding of HR compliance. After decades of advising Canadian organizations, we realized there was a simpler way for employers to comply with complex and ever-changing HR laws.

By combining our legal expertise with modern technologies, we built Compliance Works—the first HR compliance software of its kind to make Canadian HR laws more easily accessible to anyone who needs them.
