Microsoft Canada Development Center(MCDC) in Vancouver


Microsoft Canada and our corporate head office will be opening a software development centre in Greater Vancouver, BC. The Microsoft Canada Development Centre will open in the Fall of 2007 and will be home to software developers from around the world.

This fantastic news was announced earlier today. I think this is such a great move for the company and for the Vancouver Hi-Tech industry. Vancouver has always been branded as one of the best places to live on earth. The living environment will definitely attract a lot of IT workers. At the same time, Vancouver is very multicultural, a true global gateway. Thus, the development center will attract international talents as well. International students can also leverage the BC Provincial Nominee program to become Canadian Permanent Resident and work and live  in Canada for long term. EA, IBM, and Nokia (see David's list for more) all have development or R&D centers in Greater Vancouver area already. I'm happy to see MCDC is one of the handful development centers outside of the States.

Cheers, Qixing

    Hello Paul,

    The site (http://www.microsoft.com/canada/employment/default.mspx?CM=Nav&CE=Nav2b) posted by you earlier shows jobs requiring experience or are for managerial positions.

    Is the same portal applicable for new graduates interested in MCDC Vancouver (for software development jobs)or is there some other site I should watch?

    Regards,

    It would a great opportunity for labour resources in software development from all around the world to work for Microsoft Canada.

    Being from Mauritius, I sincerely hope that resources from a small island in the Indian Ocean like mine also get the opportunity to work for Microsoft Canada.

    Would be pleased to know when the recruitment procedures will start.  I may always be contacted on rood27@yahoo.com.
