WHY NOT MOVE TO

CANADA


EH?

MAKE CANADA GREAT AGAIN
EVEN GREATER

Every now and again, Americans put aside their traditional opinions of Canada to consider emigration. Not often—once every four years or so. And for some reason there’s a slight 1000% spike in search traffic on the subject. (Americans showing love for Canada? That’s what we call a Super Tuesday.)

This year, Canada is pulling out all the stops to offer aid and comfort to our neighbours to the South. (Hats off to Cape Breton for getting the ball rolling.) But c’mon now—no teasing our bagged milk, or the Timbits. And you’ll need some Canadian money, buddy. (Health care may be free, but we charge for most everything else. Sorry about that.)

That’s where Critical Mass comes in. We’re a digital experience design agency—with deep Canadian roots. And we’re looking for thirty new faces for our offices in Calgary and Toronto. Call yourselves digital gurus, creative innovators, free thinkers, ex-pats, proto-Canucks or wall-dodgers: we just want to call you coworkers.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR NEW HOME

1. CANADA IS BIG

Canada is very big. But not full of itself. It just sort of got that way. Critical Mass is also big. Not too big. More like a big high school reunion where everybody grew up to be super nice and successful.

2. WE’RE BAD AXES

Canada has lumberjacks in large numbers. It’s a noble profession, and badass. Critical Mass has a club that teaches you to throw axes at targets. Slightly less noble (we’re amateurs), but just as badass.

3. HIGH POUTINE DIETS

Canada has poutine. Beaver tails. All-dressed chips. Butter tarts. Kraft Dinner! Tim Hortons! MAPLE EVERYTHING. Critical Mass has a well-stocked office kitchen. (And a lot of exercise-positive people.) 

4. WE’RE POLYGLOTS, EH?

Canada’s official languages include the Queen’s English and Canadian French. Critical Mass’s official languages include HTML, CSS, JavaScript, ruby, sass (OK, that’s a CSS extension, but you get the drift).

5. WE KEEP IT REAL (SYRUPY)

Canada is home to the Global Strategic Maple Syrup Reserve, ensuring we never run out of the real thing (sorry, corn syrup). Critical Mass is home to people that make global, strategic design ready for consumption. Also 100% real.
