Default Canadians hiring cheap foreign labor - americans !

Thought folks might find the following interesting.

I recently returned from a visit to Canada where I stayed with my brother-in-law, who owns a small but very successful web development shop. He told me that due to the booming Canadian economy, he can no longer find experienced programmers at reasonable bill rates. So he's been doing some outsourcing to get cheap foreign labor ... hiring American programmers !

Where was that? Vancouver? Toronto?
Was it Java or LAMP or .NET stuff?

Default people

People who are in US just for conversion rate can now think of this move. I USD = 39.4 INR, 1 Canadian $ = 37.xx. Not a big difference.

LAMP - Calgary. Also, some financial analysts are predicting that the $CDN will actually be worth *more* than the $US by the end of 2007.
