Talent shortages, globalization of trade, dual-income families, rising housing markets and changing demographics over the past decade have made employee relocation much more challenging and strategically important to overall talent management.

Globalization of trade is opening up many new opportunities for Canadian employers to expand outside of domestic and North American markets, giving rise to a greater demand for skilled professionals to take on international assignments.

Talent shortages in specific industries and skilled trades also mean companies are competing for the best and brightest. And younger people entering the workforce are looking to mobility as a way to gain greater skills and experience.
