S.i. Systems acquires Datalist; doubles market presence in Toronto

S.i. SystemsI am a little late to the game on this one, but I think this news is still important to recognize.

S.i. Systems announced mid-last week that it has acquired Datalist Inc., a full-service IT staffing company focused on the banking, retail, government and financial sectors. With the deal, S.i. Systems’ presence in the Greater Toronto Area will double to approximately 250 consultants.

Founded in 1994 and headquartered in Calgary, S.i. Systems is a national supplier of on demand IT Professional Staffing Services, and the largest supplier in Western Canada. 

Derek Bullen is the company’s founder and president:

“Not only does this acquisition represent another milestone in our strategy to increase our footprint in the Toronto area, but it also deepens our specialization in banking, financial services, telecommunications and retail sectors. Datalist brings excellent professionals, a deep roster of contractors and leading clients to further enhance our existing strong team and business.”

In late-2009, S.i. Systems opened two new offices in the GTA-region: one in Toronto and one in Mississauga. The company also has offices in Edmonton, Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Victoria.
