Canada Computers in Markham

Canada Computers & Electronics, known by its trade names Canada Computers in English Canada and Ordinateurs Canada in Quebec, is a Canadian consumer electronics retailer,[2] headquartered in Richmond Hill, Ontario.[3][4] As of 2018, the company has over 1,000 employees and 35 locations in Southern Ontario, Greater Montreal and Greater Vancouver,[2][5] up from 28 locations in Ontario and Quebec in 2013.[6] It expanded to Nova Scotia with a Windsor location in 2019.[7]

Canada Computers was founded in 1991[2] by Gordon Chan, after a period of selling floppy disks at Queen's University as a student. He used the proceeds to relocate his business to his new home and started selling personal computers and components.[8] The first official retail store opened outside of Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario. The location at 366 College Street in Toronto suffered over $1 million in damages in a massive 2010 fire.[1]
