JFYI, this is the same if you're incorporated. A bank I did a contract for is currently in talks with CRA to prove that the contractors don't count as full time employees, even though they were all incorporated and through agencies. Some were there for over 3 years. They would just give them new contracts with new job titles so no one had the same title for over a year... apparently the CRA called BS.
