Ontario is a place where you will find a highly educated and talented workforce, lower labour costs, and a broad ecosystem for innovation and R&D. World leaders in big data and cloud computing, data centres, microelectronics, digital media, security encryption, mobile gaming, mobile payments, wireless, telecom and networks and seven of the 10 largest tech companies in the world conduct R&D in Ontario.

With over 23,000 firms, nearly 315,000 workers, $41B of Ontario’s GDP, and $7.4B in exports, Ontario is the place to be.
