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. If Ontario’s ICT sector were its own country, its economy would be bigger than roughly half of the countries around the globe. 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. 

Brazil is Latin America`s largest telecom and ICT market. It is one of the world’s largest emerging ICT markets with annual expenditures of over US$120 billion, representing more than 46 per cent of the total ICT market in Latin America. Ontario companies in hyper connectivity (IoT, mobility, 5G, wireless and wireline technologies, satellite, etc.) and in disruptive technologies (blockchain, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, smart cities, cybersecurity) will be participating in this mission.
