What does it mean for a company to be "Canadian"?

Acquisitions have played an important role in the successful growth of Globalive. From the beginning, the company has consistently introduced innovative technologies and software solutions to the Canadian telecommunications market through production and partnership. To this day, Globalive remains a privately owned Canadian company.

From the same source:
As Globalive entered the new millennium, its remarkable success in the first few years of business created a need to expand in order to meet growing client demands. Several of Globalives key employees were hired, many of which remain with the company today.

It seems odd that a Canadian company cannot find anyone who understands English well enough to recognize that the appropriate word is either "who" or "whom" when referring to employees.

Perhaps it's not really very odd, because the claim that the company is Canadian comes from the company's website.

From a news story:
On Friday, the court said the federal cabinet had overstepped its powers in 2009 by overturning a CRTC ruling that found Wind Mobiles parent, Globalive Wireless Management Corp., was controlled in fact by its Cairo-based backer, Orascom Telecom.

Note that the court referred to in the above sentence is the Federal Court of Canada.
