Discover our journey

Our company

In early 2016 the co-founders of Localintel observed that most communities lacked the time and budget to harness the power of technology to attract businesses and talent as well as support existing businesses. They set out to change this.

Fast forward to 2023 and hundreds of communities across the US and Canada use Localintel products to identify and showcase what makes their communities a desirable place for businesses to operate and talent to live.  

Through hard work and constantly listening to needs of communities and business, Localintel has become one of the most innovative location intelligence companies in the world.



Localintel’s plug and play tools have reached almost a million monthly views on client websites in 2023.

550 to 38m

This is the population size of the smallest and largest communities we are working with.


This is the combined population of the communities our tools are currently helping around the world.


From humble beginnings in Calgary, we have since set up additional offices in Seattle and Vancouver.
