HCL Technologies plans to build a new global delivery centre in Mississauga, one of the company’s largest in Canada. It will house co-innovation labs for customers to collaborate, develop and deliver solutions for their businesses.

“We are very excited to continue expanding our operation in Ontario with our largest facility yet in Canada,” Jagadeshwar Gattu, senior corporate vice-president at HCL, said in a statement. “The new Global Delivery Centre in Mississauga provides an opportunity for HCL Technologies to expand our best-in-class digital innovation in Ontario and support our global clients while creating great IT Industry job opportunities in this community. We look forward to more growth and opportunities in Canada in the coming months.”

The Ontario government welcomes the decision by HCL Technologies to expand its Canadian operations with a new global delivery centre in Mississauga. The company is making a significant  investment to build the centre which will employ 350 people in the information and communication technology (ICT) sector when it opens, eventually growing to 500 positions.

“HCL’s decision to expand its operations in Mississauga makes a lot of sense as the GTA is home to the second biggest tech industry in North America after Silicon Valley,” said Premier Ford. “We are laying the foundation for a strong economic recovery in Ontario and companies like HCL will play a significant role in our future success.”

Over the past two years, the Government of Ontario and Toronto Global have worked with HCL to secure Ontario as the destination for HCL’s new Canadian delivery centre. Minister of Economic Development Vic Fideli met with HCL at their headquarters in New Delhi during a Trade and Investment Mission to India in November 2019, and again during Ontario’s virtual mission to India in December 2020. Discussions further solidified Ontario’s strong collaboration with the company and their continued growth and investment within the province.

“Ontario’s deep talent pool, cutting edge innovation ecosystem, and competitive business costs make our province an ideal place for investment,” Fedeli said. “We are proud that HCL selected Ontario as the home for their new facility.”

HCL Technologies is an Indian multinational IT services and consulting company with offices in 50 countries and a worldwide network of R&D innovation labs and delivery centres. The Mississauga Global Delivery Centre will be one of the largest for HCL in Canada and will house co-innovation labs for customers to collaborate, develop and deliver solutions for their businesses. The HCL Group has committed to creating 2,000 new jobs across Canada in the future.

“We are very excited to continue expanding our operation in Ontario with our largest facility yet in Canada, ” Gattu said.”The new Global Delivery Centre in Mississauga provides an opportunity for HCL Technologies to expand our best-in-class digital innovation in Ontario and support our global clients while creating great IT Industry job opportunities in this community. We look forward to more growth and opportunities in Canada in the coming months.”
