Happy Canada Day from everyone at Lightspeed!

Today, we celebrate with Canadians!

This past year has been a whirlwind of change for our company, and we have our customers from far and wide to thank for our continual growth. We met our 10 year mark this past June, and are more excited than ever to see what the future holds.

As an international company that started in a small apartment in Montreal, we are proud to be part of the thriving Canadian tech scene. Our continued growth in this industry has been exciting but mostly rewarding. As CEO and founder Dax Dasilva stated,

“Canada has become a strong incubator for rapidly growing tech companies – particularly in commerce – and it is finally having its day,” says Dasilva.

We could not be prouder to be based in Canada, and are inspired by our local customers who bravely open boutiques without any guarantees. Watch how the owner of Urban Bonfire has turned memories of family barbecues up north in the country into a successful business in Montreal – as Canadian as it gets!

From the shores of PEI to the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, independent retailers and restaurateurs are the mainstay of our communities. The continued growth of small businesses throughout Canada is one of the core tenets of Lightspeed’s spirit and roadmap. We wish everyone a happy July 1st.



Lightspeed POS creates point of sale technology for independent stores and restaurants. We’ve been around since 2005, when founder Dax DaSilva set out to build the most sleek and user-friendly POS system for retailers on the market. We know our industries, the issues business owners face and how to overcome them. After all, we’ve been working hand-in-hand with our customers for over 10 years! We provide the tools and expertise to make our customers’ lives easier and make their customers happier.
