Let's Learn More About Find Local Labour

Find Local Labour is owned and operated by Rory Perron. Rory worked for Front Line Furniture prior to launching Find Local Labour. This is where many of his great clients first met him. When Rory was at Front Line he would post a job and be overwhelmed by the sea of applicants and the time it took to weed through the masses of resumes to than find a handful of applicants to interview. He found that he still didn't know until the interview whether or not these applicants were truly qualified. This is how the concept for Find Local Labour was born! 

Find Local Labour is NOT just another generic job site, it is much more than that. The Find Local Labour recruitment website is a tool that helps employers find local entry-level job seekers with the qualifications and experience they are looking for. It is a local Trusted website that job seekers can post their resume to so they can reach these local businesses effectively!

We spoke to many of Rory's clients that have worked with him to hire employees and they were so happy with how pain-free the recruitment process was and how much simpler is it is. The feedback was consistent- Find Local Labour saved them time and money! 

There are many checks and requirements in the Trusted Saskatoon verification process, one of those includes our team calling 15-20 references and previous customer personally to conduct a survey, it is a pass or fail. Why do we do this? We want to hear about their experience with the business applying to be a Trusted Saskatoon partner. We take these extra steps to personally verify all of our applicants prior to them becoming Trusted Saskatoon Directory partners, so you don't have to. Find Local Labour has a similar system, but in their unique process they are calling the previous employees past employer references and from there Find Local Labour provides a ' reliability rating' for each candidate. This truly is an extra step that offers value that other online job sites don't offer! 

Rory is passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm and work ethic is admirable. He is the kind of guy you want to work with and you know you can trust him instinctively!  Here is what some of the people that have worked with Rory or know him personally had to say:


"I have been using Local Labour for a few months as an employer looking for employees. I found their site easy to use and their customer service has been nothing short of amazing. I have successfully recruited 3 employees from the site. On all three occasions, the employees were available immediately and I had them start working within three days. I still currently employ all three employees found on this site. The reliability rating Local Labour provides made it easy for me to pick the right candidates. I would strongly recommend using this service." Jason Lang

'Rory and his team provide top quality professional service with a personal and human touch...the last 2 qualities are sadly missing in many business relationships these days.' Paul Hastings

'Rory is a professional in every aspect. He always strives for top-level knowledge, service and support no matter what the application is. Rory comes highly recommended.' Kerry Fuchs



Over the years Rory has ensured that supporting local charities is part of his business. Some of his favourite charities he has supported over the years include Saskatoon Food Bank & Learning Centre, Crisis Nursery, Ronald McDonald House, CNYC Core Neighbourhood Youth Coop and YMCA Strong Kids Program. Giving back to the community that he lives in is very important to Rory!

The Trusted Saskatoon team are thrilled to give Find Local Labour 'The Thumbs Up' as a Trusted Saskatoon Recruitment Service - welcome to the Trusted Saskatoon Community!

Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage Broker Tammy Wandzura Answers: How to choose a Mortgage Broker?

Purchasing your home is one of the biggest and most important decisions that you can make. Tammy Wandzura, is a Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage broker and the team at Elite Mortgage Choice believe that buying a home should also be an exciting experience with little to NO stress. By trusting your Mortgage Broker, you are ensuring that any stress you may have had in previous encounters can be eliminated! In the latest Trusted Saskatoon Mortgage Tip, we share some advice from Tammy Wandzura on why and how to choose a mortgage broker.

The Big Question: Mortgage Broker vs. Bank


So, you have decided to purchase a home? Now you have all kinds of suggestions from your friends, colleagues on and family on how to proceed with your mortgage.

Maybe it’s mortgage renewal time or perhaps it's time for a renovation and you want to refinance? The big question is - do you use a mortgage broker or go directly to the bank?

We live in a world where our time is limited- and we have all the info we need at our fingertips (Google). We want to make the very best decision with no regrets.

TRUST the REFERRAL.


As a Mortgage Broker since 2005, my day does not only consist of communicating with lenders & running numbers.

Most of my day consists of finding better and new ways to “wow” my clients even more.



I strive to keep Mortgages simple


Simple solutions; for not so simple situations in some cases.

We LOVE helping First-time home-buyers make their dreams come true; but we are also experts in things such as Separation and Divorce mortgage financing, RENEWALS (a GREAT time to review your long-term plan) or REFINANCING to open up equity for investments, debt consolidation, etc.


Our goals are your goals: Mortgage Freedom as soon as possible!


I am a great Saskatoon mortgage broker.  I have been doing this for a long time and I am an expert in everything related to mortgages. 

Best rates up front. No hassle. No haggling. No regret.

Sound too forward?  I am great–but I am not the best. I am ONE of the best. I have some really amazingly talented industry colleagues all across Canada –who are also the best.

I urge you to consider talking to a mortgage broker next time you need a mortgage.  We are experts in everything related to mortgages…and we do not run off target driven requirements.

Is every Broker created equal?  The simple answer is NO.

The level of volumes, experience, relationships with lenders and years in the industry are all things to consider.

Have you checked out my Google Reviews??  Website referrals are important points of reference.  

Google reviews are a platform that most business owner’s take very seriously.  This is where clients are telling the world their true version of how they felt their customer experience was. I work very hard at making sure that each of my clients knows how invested I am part of their application from PRE-APPROVAL to POSSESSION date.


In life, I 100% believe that knowledge is power. I have saved many clients thousands of dollars in interest costs over the years & many are now close to MORTGAGE FREEDOM- This is based on the solid advice and guidance we have provided.

The Fed’s have implemented vast Mortgage rules changes (October 2016 and further changes January 2018) This has created some changes to the market that many consumers are having a tough time navigating through. That is where a Trusted and experienced mortgage broker is worth their weight in gold.
