HCL Technologies, an India-based IT services and consulting firm, has opened a new global delivery center in Mississauga, Ontario. The company plans to expand its Canada headcount with 2,000 new positions over the next three years.

The new center, located at 7125 Mississauga Rd., has a capacity of 350 workers. It will deliver services in digital and analytics solutions, cloud consulting and migration, cybersecurity, IT infrastructure, and application services.

The Mississauga location will also house co-innovation labs for clients to collaborate and develop next-generation solutions in their digital transformation journey.

“We are very excited to continue expanding our operations in Canada with our largest center yet in the country,” said Jagadeshwar Gattu, senior corporate vice president, HCL Technologies. “The new Global Delivery Center in Mississauga provides an opportunity for HCL Technologies to expand our best-in-class digital innovation in Canada and support our global clients while creating great IT industry job opportunities in this community.

HCL entered the Canadian market in 2009 with an office in Toronto. The firm opened its first delivery center in the country in 2019 with a location in Moncton, New Brunswick. HCL currently has 1,100 employees in Canada, with additional locations in Vancouver, Victoria, and Edmonton.

“I’m thrilled to see such investment and job creation from global leaders like HCL Technologies right here in Ontario,” said Premier Doug Ford. “This new facility will strengthen our economy and workforce, while supporting industries nation-wide.”

The Mississauga delivery center is part of wider Canadian expansion plans for the IT consultancy, which has approximately 160,000 employees in 50 countries. The firm plans to grow its Canada headcount with an additional 2,000 jobs in the next three years. The job growth will include expansion of HCL’s offices in BC and Alberta.

HCL’s expansion follows recent Canadian job growth announcements from rival Indian IT consulting firms Infosys and Tata Consultancy Services. Infosys earlier this month announced plans to create 500 new jobs in Calgary and double its Canada headcount to 4,000 by 2023, while TCS aims to create 500 new jobs in Montreal in the next three years.
