Opportunity Awaits in the Largest Technology Park in Canada
May 04, 2022
Kanata North in numbers: Annual GDP exceeds $13B, 33,000 people employed, 1,200+ open positions currently
Kanata North was not known for its high-tech strengths when Terry Matthews started Mitel together with Mike Cowpland in 1972. Since that time, however, the continued attraction of world-class talent, leading edge innovation and global business growth have combined to make the area the largest cluster of technology companies and activity in the country.
Today, the Kanata North Technology Park is home to more than 540 technology companies, ranging from start-ups to multinationals, and employing 33,000 people from the Ottawa community and beyond. From autonomous vehicle technologies to smart healthcare solutions and much more, where talent goes, innovation follows. The big news is there are more than 1,200 jobs currently available in Kanata North. The bigger news is there is no sign of this growth slowing down anytime soon!
