Behance gives Canadian businesses looking for freelance designers access to an extensive pool of portfolios and profiles for free. Their services include the opportunity to post jobs and open projects that job seekers can filter by location.
Despite it being a U.S.-based site, Behance offers Canadian employers a free job posting service. However, the job board is quite basic when compared to similar portfolio sites and other Canadian freelance job boards, lacking applicant tracking tools, job ad distribution, and social media promotion.

Behance vs. Dribbble:
Behance and Dribbble both feature large talent pools of design-based professionals. Behance's free job posting service makes it the more affordable choice, but it does not offer any additional visibility boosts or applicant tracking tools. By contrast, Dribbble charges C$408.00 per month and is a valuable resource for networking with local designers.
Behance vs. SimplyHired:
Behance and SimplyHired both cater to the local job market but offer a global reach. Behance, however, is a niche site for creative talent, while SimplyHired focuses on general jobs. Both platforms are completely free to use for employers, but SimplyHired is slightly more feature-rich, offering advanced search filters.
Behance vs. Creative City Job Board:
While Behance caters specifically to employers in search of design-based freelancers, Creative City is a local job board that advertises a wide range of arts, culture, and design roles. Of the two, Behance is the more affordable choice, offering a free job posting service, while Creative City charges C$25.00 per post.
