Canada is a global leader in a variety of business service verticals. Foreign investors have established operations in human resources management, customer relations management, knowledge process outsourcing, data mining, application development, project management, business continuity and disaster planning support. The business services sector is a large part of the Canadian economy and foreign investors can expect deep supply chains and infrastructure to support their objectives.
“…There’s high confidence right now; the economy is doing well and lots of investment is being made; this consistency shows that businesses really can rely on Canada…”
