Global Solutions Canada
Vancouver-based Global Solutions Canada specializes in recruiting and placing engineers and geologists by providing around-the-clock human resources solutions to the oil sands, gas and mining. Global Solutions Canada has formed strategic alliances with international corporations to deliver a highly specialized approach to help ease the looming shortage of skilled workers in Canada 's oil, gas and mining sectors, by bringing engineers and geologists from around the world to Canada. The Alberta oil sands industry is a focus of Global Solution Canada 's activity. Spectacular growth has spurred the need for engineers and geologists to not only work in mammoth mining and refining operations, but also to build housing and other infrastructure for the huge influx of workers descending on the area.
Owned and spearheaded by president and CEO Romana Didulo, Romana has built a team that has over fifteen years combined experience in the retail industry, financial services and private business, plus a strong background in political science and public service. The company had its start in the Toward Excellence Self-Employment Equity Program, where Didulo worked on her business plan with a consultative committee and advisors that included experienced oil industry executives. Didulo received hands-on feedback and practical advice on how to structure her company. As her Advisors' interest in her business plan grew, they invited input from investors from within the mining and oil exploration industry. This allowed for a more ambitious scope.
The company also has a strong corporate social responsibility agenda. "Because of its commitment to community involvement, Global Solutions Canada's employees are also encouraged and supported to regularly volunteer in the community", Romana says. With the future of her company looking bright, she says Global Solutions Canada's plans include becoming a one-stop shop providing human resources solutions to the Canadian construction and healthcare industry through the parent company 24 Hours Care Inc. She is confident that her team has the focus, determination and energy to succeed. "Focus, a clear vision, a sense of direction and commitment will guarantee success no matter what challenges are encountered along the way," says Didulo.
