Doing business in Canada:
It’s all about making the right connections

Posted July 19, 2020


With more global businesses opening offices in Canada—thanks to favourable tax rates, a strong economy and growing industries—the big question for everyone from international service providers to cablecos becomes: How can you best support your customers as they grow?

Partnering with an established Canadian vendor, like BCE Global – USA, is a smart move for a number of reasons. It will extend your reach, eliminate the cost of building new network infrastructure and provide access to geographically diverse areas— would you believe Canada spans 9.9million square kilometers?

However, not all service providers bring the same capabilities to the table. Here’s a quick checklist to keep in mind as you consider your options.

Choosing a Canadian partner: The essential checklist

How extensive is their network?
It’s important to choose a provider with a network reach that extends from coast to coast to coast to reach consumers across Canada.

Does their network comply with local regulations?
Data sovereignty is non-negotiable in many cases. The ability to keep data from travelling outside the country is an important factor in today’s highly regulated environment.

How easily can the service be scaled?
Your needs may change as business grows or as seasonal demands cause bandwidth requirements to spike, making scalability a key factor.

What tier is the network?
Tier 1 providers typically have large coverage areas as well as own, operate and control their own network infrastructure.

What type of professional support is available?
Local, certified support is key to help you implement services and provide ongoing support.

Is the network adaptive?
It should be simple to add, change or remove services and options as your customers’ business needs evolve.

What types of SLAs are provided?
Look for robust, comprehensive service level agreements to ensure that businesses can stay up and running.
