Canada’s ICT Sector (Information, Communication and Technology) is a diverse, innovative and growing segment of the overall economy. The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is considered to be the next Silicon Valley. At the Danish Trade Council, we help Danish companies navigate and seize the amazing potential we see in Canada.


Toronto is located within a few hours travel of 135 million people

Toronto represents more than 20% of Canada’s economy and the region’s proximity to major North American cities makes it a great place to do business in. This, combined with the diverse culture and openness in Canada make it easy for Danish companies to make a difference.


The largest tech hub in Canada

Toronto is the largest technology hub in Canada and the third largest in North America – only succeeded by San Francisco and New York. The large number of start-ups, established businesses and the combination of a tech ecosystem in the Kitchener/Waterloo area creates a perfect place for Danish companies to do business. Contact us if you want to know more about the big potential in Canada.


It is easy to do business in Canada

With the newly-signed Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) between the European Union and Canada, doing business in Canada has never been easier for ICT companies in Denmark. Many different taxes and tariffs have been removed together with former bureaucratic barriers. You can read more about the CETA here or contact the Danish Trade Council for more information on how you can enter the expanding Canadian market.


Many sectors to choose from

The ICT sector is often split into the following areas with even more to choose from:

  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Machine learning
  • Big Data analytics
  • Business Intelligence
  • Digitalization (Public and private)
  • Ecommerce
  • Financial Technology (Fintech)
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Mobile technology
  • Robotics and Automation
  • Smart Cities
  • Video Gaming
  • And much more…


Canada boasts a wide array of ICT subsectors that we can help you tap into, in particular, the Fintech market which is still in its early phase in Canada. Currently, we are experiencing a massive uprising in R&D and implementation of both Internet of Things and Big Data. How will artificial intelligence impact our way of life? Let’s talk about the future of the ICT sector, share market insights and discuss how you can roll out your product/service on your own or by starting a strategic partnership between Danish and local businesses.
