60 Startups in Canada That Are Globally Well Known!

Top 60 Startups In Canada That Has Made An Impact In Global Stage!

  

Canada has a proud history of technological innovation. Communications company Nortel pushed expansion in the 1970s, bringing talented telecom engineers. In 1983, after a wave of deregulation, Nortel gave way to Bell Canada Enterprise (BCE), which signaled an era of telecom preeminence.

The Country has produced some of the finest startups the world has ever seen. In each sector whether it is AI/Big Data/ Biotech/Fintech/Cleantech/SAAS, Canada has few or more startups that ranks at the very top of the global ranking.
 



 

 

They say that nice guys finish last — and Canada, with its reputation for polite citizenry and its charming prime minister, is used to being overlooked. Sure, Canada may tower over the United States in physical size, but many countries of similar stature — G7 nations, for example — dismiss the Great White North as nothing more than America’s top hat.
This is a mistake.
