The company was founded in 1975 by Don Harrison as D.C. Harrison Associates Ltd. Mr. Harrison was one of the Canadian pioneers in developing HR strategy and programs for outplacement/career transition consulting over 35 years ago in Hamilton, Ontario. We are one of the original outplacement firms in Canada and take great pride in the work we do with our candidates ensuring the latest in job search techniques for fast and successful landings.

In the 1990′s the company was taken over by Fred C. Hopkinson, CHRP, and continued to develop its services and products. The company became a partner firm in 1998 with Career Partners International – CPI – an organization that brings together 70 premier Talent Management firms worldwide – 10 in Canada – to allow for regional, national and global reach with local experienced teams. CPI partner firms must maintain high program standards and are monitored by a global quality assurance team to ensure industry leading delivery and client satisfaction.

The firm has continued its evolution and was re-branded a few years ago as Career Compass Canada Inc. and is headed by Alexander L. Lutchin, BA, APR – an experienced senior management executive who has a passion for high performance teams and developing the best in people and organizations.
