Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

First of all, it is great that you are looking into this further before paying any requested amounts. This is an extremely important step.

We can appreciate that you would be interested in verifying this offer and this company.

It is important to review the website for inconsistencies.

After a quick review, there are several, significant inconsistencies.

If you review the "Directions" section in the "Contact" section of the site, you will see that the locations, streets, buildings and businesses do not correspond to buildings in Toronto.

In that section it also provides directions and states highways and street names that do not exist in Toronto.

In the section regarding travelling by train, there are references to companies that do not exist in Canada.

We suggest that you continue to do an in-depth review of the site and the company. Please be very wary.

It is really important to verify any company you are unfamiliar with, especially companies requesting upfront payment.

Thank you very much for posting your inquiry here as it will be very helpful for others who are looking into this company.

We hope that others who may have had experiences or contact with this situation can share their comments and suggestions.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.

I'm sorry to say that the offer is completely a scam and neither of Canadian companies never ever asking for any kind of payments. So don't trust them and don't pay any penny.
Wish you success in your job hunting.
