Registering a business

If you are representing the business as a consultant, lawyer or friend, you must obtain permission from the employer.

Job Bank may contact them directly to confirm that you are an authorized representative.
All users are responsible for their actions on a file.
A user attempting to create an employer file understands and agrees that their email address and name will be sent by email to the primary officer of an employer file if the payroll account number provided has already been registered in the system.
Job Bank reserves the right to remove or modify access to an employer file at any time without contacting the primary user of the employer file. If you no longer require access to the employer file, please contact Job Bank.
Job Bank may undertake additional verification procedures, including, but not limited to, contacting third parties to confirm information submitted.

Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage in order to provide and protect the security of the service. This software receives and records the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer that has contacted our website, the date and time of the visit and the pages visited. We make no attempt to link these addresses with the identity of individuals visiting our site unless we suspect misuse of the site or any other potential risk to Job Bank or its users.
Access to the IP address information is secure and limited to select administrative users within the Job Bank administrative module.

These authorities allow the creation and maintenance of a national employment service, known as Job Bank, which provides information on employment opportunities across Canada to help workers find suitable employment and help employers find suitable workers.
The SIN is collected under the authority of the Employment Insurance Act and its Regulations and in accordance with the Treasury Board Secretariat Directive on the SIN, which includes Job Bank as an authorized user of the SIN.
The SIN will be used as a personal identifier to authenticate the identity and eligibility of individuals requesting online access to Job Bank for Employers. Your last name, SIN, date of birth and mother’s maiden name or parent’s last name at birth will be matched against the Social Insurance Registry through an automated process to authenticate Canadians and permanent residents requesting access to Job Bank for Employers for the purposes of posting a job advertisement through the creation of an employer file.
