The Home Depot Canada and CARP, Canada's
Association for the Fifty-Plus have formed an exclusive hiring partnership. The hiring relationship with CARP allows The Home Depot to reach Canada's 50+ population and expand its workforce, as well as better meet the diverse needs of its
customers. It will also benefit from CARP's expertise in understanding exactly what kind of employment opportunities best suit the 50+ prospect, making it a mutually rewarding relationship for both the retailer and the associate. This follows the creation of a similar partnership between The Home Depot and the AARP started in February 2004 in the United States.
