  • In early April 2013, it was reported that forty-five Royal Bank of Canada (“RBC”) employees in Toronto would be losing their jobs because the company had outsourced several technology services to iGate, a California-based firm that specializes in sending jobs offshore. RBC faced a severe public backlash over the incident. Questions were also raised regarding how iGate had brought its own employees into Canada under the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (“TFWP”), so that they could be trained at RBC offices.
