And the number of creative and development facilities across Canada is growing due to generous government support and a large pool of skilled talent. This makes it an attractive jurisdiction for Japanese companies looking to expand their footprint internationally, set up resources closer to the US, or simply access the talent pool via hiring or acquisition.
