Remote talent, innovative tech and a vision for change
We recruit talented remote assistants who may traditionally have faced barriers to employment. Then we curate personalized matches between businesses and assistants using our own algorithm, machine learning and human expertise – all within a monthly subscription. It’s a win-win-win for businesses, assistants, and diversity.

When Bobbie was laid off from her oil and gas job in an economic downturn, she struggled to find work. She didn’t lack skill or talent, but as an Indigenous, LGBTQ woman who didn’t fit the typical 9 to 5 mold, she was often overlooked.
So she decided to forge her own path and marketed herself as a virtual assistant. After an overwhelmingly positive response, she saw the opportunity: a talent-as-a-service platform that would provide income opportunities for individuals from traditionally underrepresented communities – just like her. She founded Virtual Gurus in 2016, and she never looked back.
Virtual Gurus boasts a talent pool of hundreds of virtual assistants including First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples, members of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities, racialized people, people with disabilities, and those living in remote communities. We are champions for diversity and inclusion and are committed to uplifting folx from these communities.
