Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is expanding its presence in Montreal by opening a new IT delivery center in the city, with plans to hire over 100 new employees immediately, and more than 500 in the next three years.
A part of the Tata group, India’s largest multinational business group, TCS has over 469,000 consultants in 46 countries.
“We are growing strongly by partnering with some of Canada’s largest and most dynamic corporations in their digital transformation initiatives, helping them harness new technologies to power their innovation. Our new center in Montreal is part of the investments we are making to support this growth,” said Soumen Roy, Country Head, TCS Canada.
“With its wealth of talent, artificial intelligence research ecosystem and reputation as a digital innovation hub, Montreal is the perfect place for us to expand. The new center will help us serve our customers better, recruit and develop the best local talent, and invest in the community.”
The new Montreal facility will offer services and solutions around advanced technologies such as cloud computing, advanced analytics, machine learning and AI. TCS plans to use the center to support new and existing clients across the transportation, retail, and financial services industry verticals.
Construction of the new 9,500-square foot facility in the heart of downtown Montreal is already underway and is expected to conclude in April.
As part of its ongoing investment in the region, TCS is also introducing its popular Ignite My Future in School program to Montreal. The pioneering training program gives educators the tools they need to integrate computational thinking into their curriculum. Computation thinking – a foundational 21st century skill – enables students to figure out how to solve real-world problems by learning how to express them in a way that a computer can solve.
TCS is one of the Top 10 IT services providers in Canada and has been operating in the country for 30 years. TCS Canada currently serves more than 100 large Canadian enterprises from coast-to-coast, and has additional offices in Toronto, Calgary, Regina and Vancouver.
With more than 5,500 employees, an established campus hiring program, and progressive workplace policies, TCS Canada has received several workforce awards. It was ranked the Number One Top Employer in Canada by the Top Employers Institute and won a gold Stevie award for its CSR strategy.
