Happy Second Anniversary Big Fish Staffing

Mike Rutherford

When Big Fish Staffing opened its doors on April 1, 2016, with the economy at its lowest, people thought this really must be an April Fools Joke. Big Fish Staffing has turned out to be no joke in the staffing and Calgary community.


We would like to thank our great staff, family and friends, community partners and last but not least the best group of clients a company could ever have.


If you haven’t gotten an invitation to our Second Anniversary Party it is due to Bruce’s recent back surgery. Stay tuned for details!

-500 bad jokes told by Bruce

-500 courtesy laughs by staff
