Jacqueline English Consulting is not your average HR firm...


Hi! I'm Jacqueline English.

I’m the owner of Jacqueline English Consulting (JEC), a human resources consulting firm serving the Greater Toronto Area. I have over 20 years of HR expertise and I love helping my clients build foundational HR programs and strategies.

JEC helps entrepreneurs and small to mid-size business to introduce HR structure and practices into their businesses , with a thoughtful and open approach. We’re passionate about HR, and how it can help  leaders create a more unified and engaged workforce.

We offer Strategic Planning, Employee Relations, Policies and Legal Compliance, Compensation, Performance Management, Recruitment Strategies & Process, Onboarding, Training, Engagement Initiatives and Succession Planning.

Psst, we love providing fractional HR support!

We understand that as your business scales, you need the expertise and reassurance that someone is looking out for you on the HR front, but you also recognize you do not require the fulltime capacity of a seasoned HR professional.  Guess what, we get that too! Which is why we have a niche market in the fractional HR space.

What exactly is HR?

HR is people focused.

Effective HR strategy includes value added programs that support the business, clear processes, targeted metrics, as well as people-centric initiatives to supporting the employees.



Traditional HR is about the day-to-day mechanics of keeping an organization running effectively.



Focuses on aligning HR to the organizational goals. It moves beyond the traditional role of HR.


The Best of Both

Both transactional and transformational HR are a necessity and it is how they blend together that can create value added support for the business.

So why JEC?

Jacqueline English Consulting provides expert, creative, and customized Human Resources solutions on demand to emerging or scaling up organizations. A key factor that differentiates us is the approach we take. We authentically learn and immerse within your business with the end goal of creating lasting partnerships clients.
