The VectorAI20 spotlights 20 Canadian AI companies to watch in 2023.


In this inaugural edition of the Vector AI20 for 2023, we highlight 20 Canadian AI companies using AI to transform their respective industries in Canada and globally. The list was compiled after analyzing 150+ Canadian AI startups that achieved major milestones in 2021 and 2022, including funding rounds and projects won. After consulting with industry partners and through Vector’s own work in the AI ecosystem, Vector narrowed down a shortlist of start-ups that reflect the key regions of AI innovation across Canada and demonstrate diversity in both their executive leadership and AI applications, to best reflect Canada’s AI start-up ecosystem. Each of these companies put AI to work in interesting and potentially transformative ways. Together, they illustrate a manifestation of the remarkable promise of Canada’s AI ecosystem – and show how AI can drive not only future innovation
