Canadian Nearshore Hubs: Manitoba

This IDC study focuses primarily on nearshoring in Canada, particularly the Province of Manitoba from where IT services are delivered to both Canadian and international clientele.As the Canadian dollar has lost ground to U.S. currency, the attention and interest in Manitoba as a nearshore hub have increased. The Manitoba nearshore industry is primarily based in Winnipeg, which is where the vast majority of IT workers in the province are employed. "Manitoba and the City of Winnipeg have the credentials to be on the outsourcing global stage," says Mark Schrutt, research vice president, IT Services and Enterprise Applications. This includes industry-specific strengths in finance and healthcare, location and underlying infrastructure, stability, and a strong educational system.
