“INVESTING IN ONTARIO”

 Cisco in December outlined a major investment plan for Ontario of up to $4 billion over the next 10 years to expand the company’s R&D footprint in the province and create 1,700 new highly skilled jobs. Recently, the company also declared Toronto as one of four global Internet-of-Everything Innovation Centre sites that Cisco intends to establish. Investment on this scale will have a huge impact on the Canadian R&D innovation ecosystem.

These and other initiatives are part of a 5-point plan for accelerating innovation in Canada. Cisco has for the past three years trumpeted the need for awareness of Canada’s challenges around innovation and productivity, and calls upon business and political leadership to be a part of a collective solution. The Cisco 5-point plan is a response to addressing these challenges and examples of “walking the talk.” 

Join Cisco Canada President Nitin Kawale, our featured speaker at the next ITAC Board of Governors Dinner, to learn more about why his company chose Ontario, and how it plans to invest in what it sees as a place with “a skilled, global workforce, strong engineering and business schools, a stable economy, and a competitive business environment.”

Nitin is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the local operations, including sales, marketing, finance, distribution, and services. He is one of the pre-eminent leaders in the Canadian ICT industry, and the vision he will share will be of great interest to all ICT executives.
