Hi! Does anyone the difference between hiring employees and independant contractors? Do I have a choice?

if your staff are employees you must do payroll deductions off their paycheque whereas if they are indepandant you don't. Check with Revenue Canada to tell you if your staff are defined as employees or independant contractors

I recently hired an HR consultant through my office supply company (of all places!) -- they helped me with my hiring questions, they helped create a job profile, and more... see grandandtoy.com/hr

I would strongly recommend you to read the following guide "Employee or Self-Employed" from CRA first before you make a choice. Remember special situations that apply on several categories particular when you use the agency in hiring.
As it is a pretty controversial area as you may realize from the end of the booklet that quite a lot of court cases end up in this area, I would suggest you to request for a ruling from CRA. A ruling is an official decision issued by an authorized officer of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). You may find out the details from the following link:
