The development of information and communication technologies in Canada
Mr. Ron MacIntosh, Executive Director, Canadian Trade Office in Taipei

Canada has a long and storied history as an innovator and early adopter in the development of information and communication technologies, particularly  in the field of telecommunications. As a result Canada is one of the most digitally advanced economies in the world!

Canada's telecommunications and high technology industry is a leading player in the ongoing development of WiMAX-related products and services. Key areas of Canadian involvement can be found in product development, network service provision, public sector research and regulation.

Canadian companies, meanwhile, are versatile and varied showcasing competitive solutions for both fixed and mobile WiMAX systems. In addition, Canadian companies demonstrate strength in everything from WiMAX chipset design, to components and modules, to full blown products. Canada is a world leader in WiMAX, as evidenced by its release of two of the first four WiMAX certified products in January 2006.

This year, to showcase Canadian capabilities in ICT and facilitate partnership between Taiwan and Canada, the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei (CTOT), along with co-hosts Taipei Computer Association (TCA), TEEMA and CoCID, are organizing a "Partnering with Canada's BEST" Forum on June 4th as an one-stop venue for you to meet with Canada's leading ICT companies and experts! The speakers we are inviting include  Wavesat, RIM/ BlackBerrt, Absolute Software, Axia Netmedia, Coolit System, Taylor Scheduling, Canada's Wireless Industry Partnership CEO, Ms Caroline Lewko, and a few more to meet with our Taiwanese friends. Please click here  to see the forum agenda for details.

You are also welcome to contact us at the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei at, if you are interested in learning more about Canada's WiMAX capability and the "Partnering with Canada's BEST" Forum. We have Canadian companies active in the commercial development of WiMAX solutions and are actively seeking business and partnership opportunities with Taiwanese counterparts.
