interest-based advertising

These cookies and other tracking technologies (such as pixel tags) are placed both by Randstad Canada and by third parties such as ad networks and other advertising companies, with Randstad’s consent. With the aid of these cookies, we measure matters including whether an advertising campaign is relevant to you or to a specific target group.

In addition, these cookies can be used to limit the number of times that an advertisement is shown.
