Will it stick?” Out of lock-down necessity, Canada’s economy has seen a high number of work-at-home first-timers over these last several months. Some love it; some don’t.

This will reduce the expenses of office maintenance and travel allowances which inevitably increase business profits. However, there will be a rise in the cost of internet facilities. All variables must be accessed and the one with less liability should be put in place for the final decision to be made.
