So why is the executive recruitment market growing in Canada and why are executive search firms there seeking executive talent?

Since World War II, Canada has transformed from a rural, agricultural economy to an expansive, major trading partner and export source in the manufacturing, mining, and service sectors. Its oil reserve ranks among the third in the world and it is a leading exporter of natural gas, oil, and minerals.

Canada enjoys a similar market oriented economic system and a strong free trading partnership with the United States. A significant part of Canada’s foreign investment is from the United States and a popular destination for Canadian foreign investments is to the United States. Despite the recent recession, Canada created 40,000 full-time jobs in December 2012, making the unemployment rate 7.1%, the lowest in four years. A majority of the employment gains were in the private sector among the transportation, warehousing, and construction industries.
