Ottawa Investigation Focuses on RBC Jobs Outsourcing Scandel

The federal government has begun an investigation into the Royal Bank of Canada’s move to outsource technology jobs and plans to review the paperwork submitted by its contractor to bring in temporary foreign workers. The investigation is focusing on what the government sees as “apparent discrepancies” regarding RBC’s explanation of the events.

RBC was highly criticized over the weekend after allegations were made public that Canada’s largest bank has contracted iGate Corp. to control the outsourcing of certain technology jobs, which was actually planning to use temporary foreign workers in place of the RBC technology staff. The bank immediately refused any such activity, and stated that it is not involved in the hiring practices of the companies it hires. However, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) has asserted that the government is now investigating the bank’s statements, along with the paperwork submitted by iGate in an application to use foreign workers.

A spokesperson for Human Resources Minister Diane Finley, Alyson Queen, stated that “an investigation is under way and HRSDC officials are currently reviewing the labour market opinions submitted by iGate in great detail, based on apparent discrepancies between RBC’s public statement and information which has previously been provided to the government.” The controversy started due to RBC’s decision of outsourcing the technology operations of its Dexia investor service business to iGate, which basically operates from India. Hence, in accordance with outsourcing jobs, iGate assigned 21 employees to visit RBC and learn Dexia’s technology systems.

  1. harpo has time to parade around handing out awards to hockey stars, while his cons swindle taxpayers money in the forum of over priced OJ and fancy limo transportation. I think harpo better start taking his parties short comings more seriously. They’re really starting to add up. PANDA!

    harpo claims he wants to get tough on his buddies using tax havens, yet he cuts Revenue Canada’s budget. Who’s scomment_IDe do you think he’s on. Hell, one of his cons, mp andrew saxton is one of the guilty.

    harpo had his cons create Pierre Poutine to help rig an election. A clear attack on our very democracy. Not to mention all the cons up for campaign financing scams and lets not forget the In and Out scam.

    harpo is also allowing his revamped TFW program to take jobs away from Canadians, from Tim Hortons all the way to RBC.

    harpo wants to sell off our oil to other countries so they can benefit from all the manufacturing jobs the oil industry won’t bring us. Leaving us with the mess to clean up and peanuts in compensation.

    harpo wants us to purchases over priced junk, that has issues working in our cold climate (see F-35). All for the sake of his war buddies down south. they dcomment_IDn’t even have the decency to tell us the true price, instead they tried to lie.

    harpo slashes essential services like search and rescue, or food safety inspection, so he can give his buddies in parliament and the senate a fat pay raise. While the rest of us have to tighten our belts.

    harpo floods our TVs, including prime time slots like the Oscars (and he won’t even tell us how much it cost), with their BS ActionAdScams. They try to use this propaganda, like in North Korea, to tell us how much dear leader harpo cares about Canadians and driving our economy forward. All on our dime I might add.

    Well, dear leader harpo, your actions speak louder than words and Canadians are now waking up to the unique brand of con BS. It seems harpo and his cons are more interested in turning Canada into a third world country, so they can sell us off to the highest bcomment_IDders.
