Our Story

Understanding the difficulty of arriving in a new city without work, in 2009 Neil and Manny Kursan created Pristine Labour, a temporary labour firm with a strong team of experienced colleagues working with them, offering quality work in safe and rewarding work places.

We now have a company that has a reputation of excellence throughout BC. Our commitment to quality training, support and employer satisfaction has created a reputation for excellence and client peace of mind.

We are keenly aware that safe, well trained and happy labourers mean happy clients and this is what puts us a cut above.
