Samsung Electronics Canada Inc. operates as a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. Samsung established its Canadian headquarters in Mississauga, Ontario, in 1987. However, Samsung has been a force in the Canadian marketplace for years as it has offered consumer products to the general public.
