  1. Oshawa, Ontario
It is one of Canada's fastest growing small tech hubs, with a growth rate covering even the top IT hubs of the maple leaf country. Though Oshawa only has limited number of tech companies, its affordability and proximity to Toronto makes it is an obvious choice for the techies.

  1. Calgary, Alberta
There are cities highly underrated. Calgary though only has under 40,000 workers in the city limits not an amazing growth rate; it is not clear what keeps the IT groups interested in the city.

  1. Ottawa, Ontario
It is popular as a 'government city' of Canada.In last few years, Ottawa has seen many tech companies finding their feed and growing. It is also an employment hub as almost 1 in every 10 Ottawa professionals are in Tech sector - one of the highest averages in the country.

  1. Edmonton, Alberta
With a powerful IT sector, there are nearly 30,000 tech workers,which continue to grow. The competition between Edmonton and Calgary may harm both the cities in long run;as they both often try to lure the same talent.

  1. Winnipeg, Manitoba
It is a quiet and isolated city, with less population than others in the list are. Having said the same, Winnipeg's IT industry has grown faster than the top cities in last few years. Amazon has recently opened an office in this city. It is an ideal place especially for the fresh IT talent.
