Bluelime Technical Services was born as a separate, sister company to Bluelime Enterprises Inc. offering Project Based Staffing Services to companies across Western Canada and Indigenous communities. Bluelime Tech specializes in Utilities, Engineering, Construction, and IT positions both Full Time and Contract.
Located in Regina, Saskatchewan, Bluelime Technical Services works within the community and across Western Canada to provide Staffing for companies as well as jobs for the Indigenous community.
Christina Tolles is the Founder of Bluelime Technical Services and of Metis descendant. Christina was raised as a proud Metis member in her community and continued to do so as she grew, receiving her BA in Psychology from the University of Guelph and her Social Service Worker Diploma from George Brown after applying and receiving a bursary through the Metis Nation of Ontario Bursaries and Scholarships Program. From there, Christina began working with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Toronto (BBBST) in 2012 as a Group Program Coordinator (BBBST is a non-profit child and youth mentoring organization). When she wasn’t working, Christina was always giving back to her community and getting involved with different Metis programs and events.
Christina’s Father, Jim Tolles, is a very active member within the Metis community which is the reason for Christina’s passion to continue keeping their traditions alive and promoting their heritage and culture. Jim is involved in the Credit River Metis Council as the Traditional Knowledge Holder and frequently attends community events sharing his knowledge and providing workshops on trapping, hunting and fire starting. Christina frequently joins her Dad in these programs and assists in keeping them active and running.
As part of Bluelime Technical Services commitment to community, we have created an education bursary to help local students take the next steps to success. I believe education is the foundation for career success, so i'm really excited to be part of this initiative. Stay tuned, announcements for 2018 are coming soon!
“With the amount of growth we are experiencing in the West, the talent pool of qualified people is diminishing and with that recruitment companies seem to be charging premiums. Once we had a discussion with Bluelime Technical Services we learned that not only do they have access to qualified engineering and mining candidates across Canada that are willing to relocate, but their fees are more economical than companies we have been previously dealing with. Not only were they able to save us money on the staffing of our projects, but they also have a partner that handles travel and lodging which will prove to save us millions over the life span of the project. Going forward we will be engaging Bluelime for projects and taking advantage of their cost saving measures.”
“Finding talent in Saskatchewan when the unemployment rate is less than 4% is very difficult. Bluelime has a unique ability to find the professionally designated candidates that we need locally or they are able transplant them here which has taken a lot of the stress off of us. The retention rate and talent level is extremely high with Bluelime Technical Services.”
“We first started working with Bluelime Technical Services in 2012, when our vendors at the time could not come up with the Engineering candidates that we critically needed within the time frame that we had proposed. Once Bluelime was engaged they provided top quality candidates in less time then we originally expected, delivered at a rate that was as competitive as companies that we have had long term relationships with. Bluelime’s efforts allowed us to get our project back on time and budget. I would highly recommend Bluelime Technical Services to any company trying to reduce project costs and ensure project success."
