Why Canada?

Toronto

Toronto is a hotbed for AI and machine learning. 
Ranked 4th globally by the Economist’s Liveability Index, Toronto has both the civic qualities and critical mass of technology innovators to make this an ideal city for AI entrepreneurs.

Toronto has talent, and lots of it.

Situated at the nucleus of top academic institutions like the University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto, we are swimming in the next generation of local and affordable tech talent.  

Toronto’s tech innovation ecosystem is vibrant, robust, and growing.  Between 2010 and 2015, our tech sector grew by 14.6% and 50,000 jobs. Today, 15% of all jobs are in tech. Toronto is also home to a critical mass of innovators, RIC’s, academic institutions, and government supporters excited about fueling the next generation of tech innovation.

Toronto believes diversity is a strength. 

Canada

Canada has always been a champion of AI research. The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) and National Sciences & Engineering Research Council of Canada were early funders of artificial intelligence research and continues to support AI innovators.

Canada believes good business thrives because of multiculturalism and diversity.  We prioritize talent immigration for small, high-growth businesses.  

 Canada’s national innovation ecosystem Trumps. Period. This is an exciting time in Canada where municipal, provincial, and federal leadership are significantly aligned in their goal of building the future through tech and entrepreneurship. Here, you’ll find forward-thinking leaders in an ecosystem eager to support you and your ideas.
