Word from the founder

Barbara Personnel Inc. is a Canadian company working tirelessly to maintain its reputation as being the best and most reliable local temporary and permanent placement agency in the National Capital Region (Ottawa-Gatineau).

BARBARA CLOUTIER

Founder of Barbara Personnel

It is with a sense of satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment that I bow out after more than 47 years in business. It has been a real pleasure for me to collaborate with the finest companies and entrepreneurs in our wonderful region for almost 50 years!  I am particularly proud to be among the first women entrepreneurs in the Outaouais, of what I have developed over time and very grateful for the respect shown by my collaborators and clients.

My business adventure began September 4th, 1973 from my mother's basement. I was only 23 years old at the time and the idea of a woman going into business was quite daring. It is with confidence that I went ahead and went through the many trials and tribulations that every business owner, man or woman, encounters along the way. Since day one, my team and I have worked with determination and determination to maintain high quality standards and to exceed our clients' expectations. 

I have had the honour of receiving several distinctions throughout my career and have been involved in various causes for the benefit of the Outaouais and Ottawa community.

Thank you for your generous support over the years and thank you for continuing to encourage local purchasing in your labour needs.

Barbara Cloutier
