Growing, emerging and winning – Kanata North!
The technological ecosystem is part of what makes Kanata North unique.
Kanata North seems something of a departure from political and bureaucratic Ottawa, the capital that Canadians think they know so well – and it is, literally as well as figuratively.
It’s a 15-minute drive from Parliament Hill, but for all its high-tech research and innovation, its community atmosphere and esprit de corps, the unique community off Highway 417 might as well be light years away.
It’s a youthful place of brilliance, creativity and optimism where some of the best technological minds in the country gather each workday to invent new things and make older ones better.
And it’s a residential neighbourhood and recreational area with all the associated amenities.
It’s also growing. Tech employment in Kanata North has been consistently on the rise since 1991. Combined, its Top 20 companies generated $3.3 billion in revenues in 2015.
Some say Kanata North is the land of multinationals, but the fact is two-thirds of its companies are Canadian.
