There is increasing diversity in the workplace, as well as a need for culturally sensitive services. Canada is a multicultural nation with over 21.9% of our population coming to Canada from other countries. Canadian businesses have faced strong competition in the global market, and as a result, have developed operations worldwide, sent employees to work across state borders, and developed joint ventures with foreign partners.
