Laval, QC. November 4, 2020 – MicroAge has been successfully operating within the Canadian Information Technology landscape since 1981.  The brand is synonymous with delivering unparalleled IT services and solutions within local communities to organizations of all sizes.  With now forty-one locations, this national network gains their momentum by leveraging the capabilities, toolsets and field support offered by MicroAge Canada, the national franchise organization. The MicroAge Value Proposition is founded on 4 pillars:  the notoriety of the brand, access to continued education, availability of tools and proven methodologies and the benefits associated with community and membership.

We are extremely happy to announce that MicroAge Rouyn-Noranda has acquired CIA Informatique, adding locations in Amos, La Sarre and Val-d’Or. The acquisition makes MicroAge Rouyn-Noranda the largest technology service provider in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region of Quebec. A true leader in the region, they now operate under the name MicroAge Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

Both organizations have a strong reputation for successfully providing IT services and solutions in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue region for many years. “We are very excited about this opportunity.

The additional resources allow us to expand both our coverage and our service and solutions delivery capabilities so we can better serve business customers in the region” said François Goulet, President of MicroAge Abitibi-Témiscamingue.
