Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a large India-based IT consulting firm, announced plans to hire 500 people in Montreal over the next three years.

The firm will open a new IT delivery center in Montreal next month, complementing its present office in the city. TCS will hire approximately 100 employees immediately, and then an additional 400 people in the next three years.

The new, 9,500-square foot, downtown Montreal facility will deliver solutions and services in cloud computing, advanced analytics, machine learning, and AI to clients in transportation, retail, and financial services.

“We are growing strongly by partnering with some of Canada’s largest and most dynamic corporations in their digital transformation initiatives, helping them harness new technologies to power their innovation. Our new center in Montreal is part of the investments we are making to support this growth,” said Soumen Roy, head of TCS Canada.

The new center will help us serve our customers better, recruit and develop the best local talent, and invest in the community,” he added.

TCS has 5,500 employees in Canada and 469,000 globally, with the bulk of its vast IT resources located in delivery centers in India. The firm competes with other large IT consulting and outsourcing firms such as HCL, Wipro, Infosys, Cognizant, and Tech Mahindra.

TCS is a successful subsidiary of Tata Group, an expansive Mumbai-based conglomerate with ventures across telecom, steel manufacturing, energy, consumer products, chemicals, and hospitality.

TCS, which was founded in 1968, has had a Canadian presence for the last 30 years. The firm has offices in Montreal, Toronto, Calgary, Regina, and Vancouver.

The consultancy’s hiring announcement follows news from competitor Infosys that it will hire 500 people in Calgary in the next three years.
