Search Engine People

Search Engine People logo"When we realised that we needed to expand our office, we chose to move to the City of Pickering. The proficiency and dedication shown by staff at the City gave us a level of comfort in knowing we had made the right decision. Our employees are thoroughly enjoying the new office in Downtown Pickering. Not only does it provide easy access to Highway 401, it's steps away from a major transit hub which provides excellent connectivity across the Greater Toronto Area." Jeff Quipp, CEO, Search Engine People.
