Although marketing, sales, and financing considerations still drive corporate decisions, most companies are no longer constrained by the size of the market or access to capital. Instead, they are constrained by the ability to build a sustaining culture that uses the talent of its people.

The quest for international and American talent continues in situations where Canadian organizations wish to expand markets into the United States, or when an American job candidate possesses specific experience or exposure not found in Canada.
