Get to Know Us


Valley Personnel was founded in 1976 and is locally owned and operated. Our years of experience enable us to react quickly to the marketplace current needs. We are the only full-service employment agency that covers the entire Fraser Valley, which includes Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission and Aldergrove.

Our objective is to make sure our customers and employees are not only completely satisfied with our staffing solutions, but to provide quality customer service as well.

Our goal is to become your partner and to develop a long-term relationship with your company for many years to come. We care about our employees and clients, and match applicants to jobs carefully to ensure the best arrangement for both. With this philosophy, we establish a close working relationship with our clients and employees.

At Valley Personnel we take pride in providing knowledgeable, friendly candidates on short-notice. We supply you with quality personnel for temporary and long-term assignments.

We build and add value to client relationships on the following principals:


Throughout the search process, there is close contact between the client and the consultant. Consistent communication is maintained as we conduct re-search, set targets, develop, qualify and present precise candidates for consideration, conduct reference checks, and perform follow-ups after placements.


We provide the critical element of objectivity in both the development of an appropriate position description and in the evaluation of internal and external candidates.


Identifying the best candidates can be costly and time consuming. While we are committed to providing broad and in-depth searches, we are mindful that timeliness is of mutual interest. While balancing the potentially competing objectives of thoroughness we also remain competitive with major City Center Agencies due to lower operating costs in the Fraser Valley.


Daily we find ourselves engaged in sensitive searches that may only become common knowledge when the assignment is completed, therefore we adhere to the strictest standards of confidentiality.
