The Technology Mergers & Acquisitions Review 2nd Edition - Canada Chapter

Allan GoodmanMichelle Vigod and Jessica Bishop authored the Canada Chapter of The Technology Mergers & Acquisitions Review 2nd Edition.

Overview from the Canada Chapter:

Deals in the technology sector continue to represent a significant percentage of overall transaction activity in Canada. The technology sector represented 13 percent of deal flow in 2020 and 23 percent of deal flow in the first quarter of 2021.

The Canadian government has fostered an environment leading to the growth of Canada's technology sector, with tax incentives and immigration policies that support the growth of tech companies, in addition to a large pool of skilled labour and venture capital dollars put to work in the sector. Canada's demonstrated leadership in financial technology, digital health, Software as a Service (SaaS), and artificial intelligence (AI) has created considerable deal activity in the technology sector, which is likely to continue.
