You may want to pin this … Pinterest plans to join other American tech heavyweights and open its first Canadian office in Toronto.
Toronto is still waiting to hear whether it will get Amazon and its new HQ2, but we already know we’ve got Microsoft, Alphabet, and Etsy.
Now, as of October 1, downtown Toronto will be another home for Pinterest as well.
Super excited to see @Pinterest open an office in Canada! One of the best social networks for CPG and retail brands, this will further enhance Toronto’s already vibrant #tech scene! #yyz 🇨🇦https://t.co/WJzhVfZHSS

While we know the office will be downtown, Pinterest hasn’t given more specifics on the location.
Former Facebook Canada and Microsoft executive Erin Elofson will head things up for the social media giant in Canada.
“Pinterest is already deeply embedded in our culture,” says Elofson in a press release.
“Canadians love Pinterest because they want to discover and try new things. They are relentlessly seeking inspiration to enhance their own lives.”
Pinterest was founded in San Francisco in 2009. The company says it hopes to better serve local business, boost international growth and “establish our presence in Canada where national media ad spending is expected to reach $11.52 billion this year.”
