UK-headquartered Kainos is tripling down on Toronto.
The digital technology provider announced today that it plans to triple its Toronto headcount from 100 to more than 300 employees over the next three years with a new office space, further cementing the Toronto office’s role as a core hub of Kainos’ business in North America.
The announcement was made in partnership with Invest Ontario. This strategic move reaffirms the strengths of Ontario’s thriving tech ecosystem and the opportunities it presents to technology companies worldwide, as industries seek to futureproof their operations with digital technologies ranging from artificial intelligence (AI), automation, cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), to cybersecurity.

“Kainos’ continued success advances Ontario’s sector growth enabling technology companies to thrive,” said Trevor Dauphinee, CEO of Invest Ontario. “With a combination of talent, R&D capability and competitive costs, Ontario’s tech ecosystem enables IT companies to seize the opportunities ahead as the world embraces digitization.”
In 2018, Kainos chose to launch its Canadian operations in Toronto thanks to its deep talent pool. Invest Ontario played an instrumental role in expediting Kainos’ expansion journey, providing advisory services and market intelligence that helped develop the company’s expansion plan.
“Kainos’ expansion will not only provide more high value jobs for the Toronto Region’s skilled tech workforce but will also help further integrate innovative technologies across the wide range of industries that make up our region’s business community,” said Toronto Global CEO, Stephen Lund.
“We are thrilled to have worked with Kainos on its journey of growth in the Toronto Region’s tech ecosystem.”
Kainos currently operates in 23 countries with more than 3,100 employees around the world, digitally empowering organizations in financial services, insurance, education, healthcare and life sciences, and the public sector.
The company offers an array of digital solutions including data and AI, cloud, service and experience design, in addition to a full suite of Workday products and services.
