From the Paper:

"This is an age of globalised businesses, ever-expanding computer networks and international data flows. In this context the process of outsourcing has become a major component towards achieving higher economic growth rate and better competitiveness in the global economy. Canada already possesses a state of the art technological infrastructure, a skilled and educated labor force and low telecommunication costs. Outsourcing was always practiced as a valuable business process to enhance growth. Bigger business organizations sourced contract jobs from across the shore to deliver better customer satisfaction at reduced cost. This way they also managed to enhance their critical to quality business core functions and improve the productivity of their workforce. With a boom in the IT sector, more specifically in the information, technology and communication industry, the need to outsource has become more necessary than ever."
