Vancouver-based GeoComply is expanding its Canadian footprint with a new office in downtown Toronto.
“This is a landmark moment for our company as we approach 600 staff members globally. We proudly support digital industries, but we cannot do that without boots on the ground,” stated GeoComply CEO and co-founder Anna Sainsbury. “Our company seeks top-level talent to fill every role, and we are so impressed with our growing Toronto team. They will drive our mission to instill confidence in every online interaction and deliver leading solutions and services to our customers.”
While the company has Canadian roots, its impact expands far beyond its country of origin. In 2021, the company’s valuation exceeds $1 billion. The company is truly an international one now, as indicated by the staffers relocating to the Toronto office.
The company also has an office in Kharkiv, Ukraine. Several employees from that office have moved to Toronto with the help of the Canadian government. The visas were fast-tracked to allow quick immigration as well as clearance to work.
In addition to the national government support, GeoComply also received support from the city in the venture. The province’s Attorney General, Doug Downey, attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony earlier this week.
“I am pleased to welcome GeoComply into Ontario’s business community. Innovative cyber-security companies like GeoComply are essential to creating a safe and compliant online gaming market. Establishing legal iGaming has been a pivotal milestone for our government as we work to ensure that Ontario is a world leader in building a secure online gaming environment that meets consumer expectations. As this digital industry continues to thrive, it is exciting to see high-tech companies bringing tangible jobs and benefits to our province,” said Downey.
