N okia has announced that it is opening a sustainable, modern office in downtown Toronto's Harbourfront community. The new office, along with the recently announced R&D center in Ottawa, is part of Nokia's ongoing efforts to expand its presence in Canada and support increased demand from Canadian customers and partners. Today's announcement highlights Nokia Canada's commitment to its employees and next-generation networking as the company continues its positive workforce growth strategy across the country.
Jeffrey Maddox, President of Nokia Canada, said: “We are excited to open our new office in downtown Toronto, in the heart of Canada's financial centre. This vibrant workspace exemplifies the best of hybrid workplaces and is designed to encourage collaboration and inspire the next wave of innovation. Our growing presence in Canada meets the increased demand from customers and partners and enables us to offer secure, high-performance and reliable mission-critical network solutions.”
Toronto Mayor John Tory said: “Toronto is a global center for technology and innovation, and I'm thrilled that Nokia Canada has recognized this by opening an office on our waterfront. Toronto is a vital economic engine for our country and we are proud to support growth in this sector, encouraging more companies and workers to come to our city. As Nokia Canada's new office brings more workers downtown, I look forward to seeing what they will accomplish as we rebuild and grow in the coming years.”
As part of Nokia Canada's flexible work model, many of the company's Toronto-based employees can choose to work remotely, hybridly or in an office setting. Located at 100 Queens Quay East, the new office provides a modern, hybrid workplace where teams can come together and share ideas in person, while also taking advantage of collaboration technologies that enable virtual teams to collaborate seamlessly. These employees work in software development, customer service and sales and help support Nokia's expanding global customer base as the company continues to introduce new product innovations. The team is focused on supporting the growing demand for Nokia's 5G, high-speed broadband, mission-critical routing, optical and private wireless solutions.
Committed to minimizing its environmental footprint, Nokia has chosen the Queens Quay office building, part of the Sugar Wharf redevelopment, to be sustainable and achieve 'AAA' LEED and Energy Star certifications. Centrally located on the waterfront, the office provides employees with access to world-class amenities and public transportation, thereby reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, the space features many elements of Canadian and Toronto history, with artwork by local artists and stunning views of Lake Ontario.
As part of Nokia Canada's continued momentum, the company recently announced the construction of a world-leading sustainable research and development center in Ottawa that will significantly expand Nokia Canada's capacity for next-generation information and communications technology (ICT) and cybersecurity innovation. The R&D center is expected to create 340 new high-value jobs and help Nokia attract highly skilled global talent to Canada's technology ecosystem.
