From the pager to the world’s first commercially successful smartphone, many early forms of communication were made in Canada. In today’s digital world, Canada continues to lead the way in innovation. Home to a rising technology market, Canada is growing and attracting innovative talent from across the globe – CBRE ranks Toronto and Vancouver in the top 12 tech talent markets in North America, while Montreal boasts over 140 game studios. This is why it should come as no surprise that Canada is attracting investments from global businesses, including some of the world’s largest technology companies.
Many enterprises based in the United States are seizing the opportunity and rapidly expanding up North. Due to its strong tech market and economy, familiarity, tax incentives and lower cost of highly skilled talent, Canada is more than a friendly neighbor to U.S. businesses that are accelerating their global trajectory. However, with expansion comes an influx of connectivity needs, data security and compliance concerns, and to be successful requires a partnership with a strong communications service provider. As organizations make critical decisions about which service provider to use, they should pay close attention to which provider can meet and scale their technology needs as they aspire to grow their businesses.
Reliability, security, and resiliency are also top of mind when seeking a Canadian service provider. Finding a provider in Canada that checks all those boxes, with robust, comprehensive service level agreements to help ensure businesses remain up and running, and an extensive team of experts, with a 24/7 help desk is not that hard.

When building a powerful partnership with BCE Global, businesses gain access into Canada’s largest network.

Extending your reach even further, BCE Global’s footprint also encompasses connectivity into the U.S. state of Alaska.

Spanning from coast-to-coast, BCE Global provides clients with a unique “triverse” offering, providing three low-latency routes, robust infrastructure for mission-critical applications and a dependable and resilient core network. In case you are wondering, triversity helps to safeguard businesses from potential network outages; in the event of simultaneous network disruptions, network traffic can automatically redirect to the next available route.
