It may be that Canada isn't at the top of the web hosting game, but clearly from reading this article you should see that they are on the march. If any of the reasons I mentioned pique your interest, using a Canadian web host would be a low risk, high reward business venture. After all, they are our friendly neighbors to the north and most of them do speak English.
When I think of Canada, I think of an extremely progressive nation politically and scientifically. It's no wonder that they're one of the leaders in the communications and technologies industry. An example of this would be how they host the IT360º Conference & Expo every year, which leads Canada in providing IT professionals with a unique IT experience. The event focuses on four key industry elements: Network, Linux/Open Source, Storage, and Security. In an industry that never stops growing, Canada is right there with the biggest names in IT.
