Reinventing Staffing

First to market, Staffy’s platform is a modern solution to staffing challenges. For employers, we facilitate quick and efficient connections with skilled contractors, to address immediate, short-term or long-term staffing needs. And for contractors, we provide the opportunity to instantly pick up shifts tailored to their skills, experience, and schedule.

Advantage, Staffy.


Staffy operates reliably with zero lag time, providing businesses and contractors with an on-demand marketplace that enables real-time matching. Contractors set their own price to reflect skills and experience, allowing managers to hire the right staff for the right job. Once the job is complete, both the contractor and business rate their experience and provide feedback to help ensure a strong and transparent community.


Staffy enables contractors to pick up shifts tailored to their skills, experience, and schedule. For individuals who can’t commit to full-time work, or are simply looking to pursue other creative passions, Staffy App enables them to find work whenever they want, or need to. Additionally, they have the ability to set their own hourly wage, to reflect their skills and experience.


Designed and built in Canada by tech industry veteran Peter Faist, and advised by Arizona Bay, Staffy has already been used by 1000+ of Toronto, Montreal, New York City, and Vancouver’s business leaders, including Bar Isabel, Elle Cuisine, and David Mintz Catering. Over 95% of our clients have filled positions on multiple occasions.


Everyone is happier and works harder when they’re offered a fair wage. When a company uses a staffing agency, the agency often takes a large portion of the hourly rate, and contractors are essentially paid less than they deserve. With Staffy, companies incur only a minor administrative fee, and contractors receive 100% of their hourly wage.

We’ve answered our most frequently asked questions for Front of House/Back of House Staff and Clients.

For Staff:

  1. A detailed resume specifically highlighting your relevant experience;
  2. Photo of your proof of eligibility to work in Canada (Passport, PR Card, VISA);
  3. Email addresses for three references;
  4. Photos/certificate #s for any industry certifications/qualifications (e.g. Food Handler Certificate) PLEASE NOTE: You’ll need to take a selfie during the sign-up process. Dress accordingly.

We pride ourselves on having the best contractors in the hospitality industry. To maintain these high standards, we need to check references for a “real world” assessment of your skills/professionalism.

You'll see open shifts based on your availability and distance settings so it's critical that you keep them current. You can find shifts three ways:
1. Push or SMS notifications (can be customized under “Setting -> Notifications”);
2. “Available Jobs” in the app; or
3. Click the bell on the Home Page.

Immediately - the moment you clock out of your shift - if eligible for StaffyPay. StaffyPay is available to contractors with a minimum five shift and 4.2+ rating. There is a nominal $5 transaction fee charged to the contractor. Otherwise, you'll be paid in five calendar days.

Your rating is the average of your client reviews. We only post your rating after your first three clients have completed the review. As clients are not obligated to rate you, feel free to ask your clients to rate you at the end of the shift.

For Employers

There is no commitment or fees to register for the Staffy platform. It's pay as you go. Simply use the platform as needed and we'll charge you for the hours worked and logged.

Our hourly rate is the contractors chosen rate + Staffy's service fee. Contractors choose their rate based on labour market trends and demands. Staffy's service fees vary according to method of payment: Pre-purchase is 20%; Credit card is 25%; and Cheque is 40%.

Provided you've cancelled the shift more than 48 hours in advance, you will not incur a fee. Otherwise, we do charge a three-hour cancellation fee, which is provided directly to the contractor as compensation for clearing their schedule.

Staffy has a rigorous recruitment process. We source our talent from recognized, established job boards. We review resumes to ensure the commensurate experience exists for the role(s) they wish to fill. We also complete reference and background checks.

Once onboarded, our real time reviews ensure that our talent are meeting and exceeding expectations. If someone isn't making the grade, we remove them from our system.

Quite easily! In our app, navigate to “Hire a Staffy” to set a “New Broadcast”. Monitor the status under “Requests”. You’ll also receive notification when there’s any activity. As soon as a suitable candidate appears, book quickly before their schedule changes!
