Review:

Founded in 2013, Used.ca is a popular online marketplace and advertising platform that boasts over 33 million monthly page views. The site allows employers to post job opportunities in different cities in Canada, ensuring that they reach and attract local talent.

Job postings are completely free with Used.ca and the platform also offers paid upgrades for increased exposure. While the platform is a useful resource for recruiting, it is not a dedicated job board and job posts may get lost among the ads for goods and services on offer.

Pros:

  • It is free to place a job ad on Used.ca.
  • Used.ca offers city-specific website portals for local employers and job seekers.
  • The platform has a number of upgrades to increase job ad exposure.
  • The platform has a mobile app for both iOS and Android.
  • Employers can choose to include job ads in a number of print publications.
  • The website has a user-friendly interface and features a simple job posting process.

Cons:

  • Used.ca is not an exclusive job board and job posts may get lost among all the adverts.
  • The platform lacks job board syndication and social media promotion.
  • The website is not available in French.

Used.ca vs. Craigslist:

Craigslist and Used.ca are very similar online marketplaces where users can advertise goods for sale and job vacancies. Both websites offer both free and paid job posting options. Craigslist receives more website traffic overall, but Used.ca is Canada-specific and may offer employers access to more local professionals.

Used.ca vs. LocalWork.ca:

Like Used.ca, LocalWork.ca is a platform that can help connect employers with local professionals through their job boards. Used.ca is the more budget-friendly platform with its free job posting service, whereas LocalWork.ca only offers paid plans starting from C$149.00 per post. LocalWork.ca offers social media promotion, which Used.ca lacks.

Used.ca vs. Job Bank:

Job Bank is the Canadian government's official job board and like Used.ca, offers a completely free job posting service. Unlike Job Bank, Used.ca offers upgrade options for increased job ad exposure, but the platform is not a dedicated job board. Job Bank may offer employers access to a larger audience of job seekers.
