100%, I joined a US based firm that doesn't have office presence in Canada this year. We're expanding pretty rapidly North of the US border.

3rd point, the job cuts in the tech sector is a bit concerning though I'm not concerned for my job stability. I'm on the younger side of things and do have transferable skills to pivot. More cuts announced today (Wealthsimple most likely because of crypto and Spotify slowing recruiting)
