An alarming number of Canadian hosting companies and ISP’s have outsourced or sold their web hosting and email services to US and abroad interests without notifying their clients. As a Canadian buisness or persons who collect citizens personal information in Canada we are bound by Federal and Provincial Privacy Acts.
Other countries contradict the Canadian Laws such as the American Patriot Act preventing Canadians from knowing how the data is being accesses of there clients or members abroad. Canhost takes pride on internally hosting all services from our facilities.
Canhost located in Kelowna, British Columbia, was designed and constructed from the ground up as a secure high availability electronic data storage facility.
