A software development company in Canada
Traditionally it is thought that the largest and the most advanced software developers are located in the United States. This is only partially true as a number of world-renown computer software companies have their headquarters in Canada.
A fan of computer games will be absolutely delighted when looking at the list of software developers located in Canada: BioWare, Piranha Games, Relic Entertainment, branch offices of Rockstar, EA, Ubisoft, Disney, Warner Brothers Games, and many others.
As far as mobile application developers are concerned, they are also numerous in Canada and they comprise a sizable part of the world computer program market. Thinking Ape, Noodlecake Studios, Square Enix Montreal, and many other such companies are stationed in Canada.
There are multiple reasons for establishing a software company in this country. The major of them in the eyes of the software developers are as follows:
- Canada is a reliable jurisdiction with an excellent reputation and predictable business environment;
- Bank accounts can be opened without too much hassle in this country;
- There is an advanced business infrastructure in Canada. It is easy to find qualified personnel there, raise funds, and receive intellectual support via the network of accelerators, business angels, and governmental programs;

Even if you are not a resident Canadian, you can still establish a company in this country without a personal visit. If you are not planning to apply for Canadian residency in the near future and want to focus on business, we recommend that you choose Limited Partnership (LP) as the form of ownership for your company.
