Eagle Climbs the Ranks! IT Staffing Company Positioned
at #11 on the Top 25 Canadian IT Services Companies

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 17, 2005) - Eagle is pleased to
announce an upward climb on the 2004 Branham 300 "Top 25 Canadian IT
Services Companies" to number 11. The rankings were released in the
March/April issue of Backbone Magazine and distributed through the Globe
and Mail. With 2004 revenues of $89 million, this is an improvement from
number 12 last year. Eagle remains ranked at number 42 on the Top 250
Canadian Technology Companies, a list that was first introduced last
year.

"We are excited about this year's results," said Eric Brown, Eagle's
CIO. "Despite the tough economy, Eagle has continued to increase
revenues and maintain growth. In the last few months, we have also
expanded operations and added offices in Regina and Victoria. To
maintain our position within the rankings would have been great. To
climb up a notch is an added bonus!"

This is the 12th year the Branham Group has published this list. The
lists are ranked on the basis of annual revenue. In addition, each
company must meet three of the following four criteria: it must have its
origin in Canada and continue to maintain its headquarters here; more
than 50% of its employees must be situated in Canada; the company's
corporate direction must be established in Canada; and, more than 50% of
its research and development must take place in Canada. For more
