There are so many great benefits to being an independent contractor in the IT space. You get to set your own hours, work on projects you love, be your own boss, and take advantage of tax incentives.

In over 20 years of working with independent contractors across Canada, we've worked with thousands of IT workers as they made the change from a permanent position as an employee to independent contracting. Some of them absolutely loved it while others realized it wasn't for them. In this month's contractor quick poll, we're asking IT contractors how they currently feel about their career decision.
