CDMN is renamed Canada’s Tech Community

KITCHEN, Ontario – (BUSINESS WIRE) – As announced last week at its semi-annual general meeting, the Canadian Digital Media Network has been renamed. In addition to an updated logo and website design, the organization has officially changed its name to Canada’s Tech Network. This new name better fits the network’s mission to provide Canadian tech-driven businesses with opportunities to bring more tech-enabled solutions to market and create jobs and wealth across the country.

“Over the past decade, Canada’s Tech Network has grown beyond supporting digital media technologies and platform providers into an important part of Canada’s innovation infrastructure,” said Avvey Peters, executive director of the Canadian Tech Network. “Our updated name better captures the work we are doing to help Canada’s small and medium-sized tech companies grow and sell in global markets.”

The Canadian Tech Network was originally founded in 2009 as a federal center of excellence for commercialization and research and now connects backbone organizations in regional tech ecosystems across the country. Today the network includes 28 innovation centers across the country – from St. John’s to Vancouver to Whitehorse.

With its signed Soft Landing program, Canada’s Tech Network has supported the international expansion of more than 860 Canadian companies since 2012. This work has resulted in more than $ 94,972,337 million in new revenues, more than $ 112,604,145 million in investment opportunities and more than $ 92,604,145 million in the creation of 320 jobs across the country (as reported by client companies).
