United States looks to Canada for outsourcing
The inaugural year of the Directory of Outsourcing Companies and Capabilities in Canada, 2008 was a milepost year for Canadian outsourcing, with the directory serving as a lightning rod for attention regarding the Canadian outsourcing industry.
Just prior to 2007, the Branham Group Inc. surveyed Fortune 1000 buyers for their outsourcing inventories and intentions for 2007, 2008 and beyond, and all indications were positive. Respondents indicated there would be a shift in their chosen outsourcing destinations within the 2007 to 2009 period. Their four most attractive targets included India, followed by onshore in the U.S., third China, and fourth Canada.
