Nextdoor launches in Canada
A new online service called Nextdoor has launched in Canada. According to the San Francisco-based company, the service is intended to help neighbours connect with each other and become informed about local activities. The service also provides recommendations for local businesses. Consumers can access the service at <http://www.nextdoor.ca> or through mobile applications for Android and Apple devices. Christopher Doyle has been appointed country manager for Nextdoor in Canada. He will be based at the company’s new office in Toronto.
“At Nextdoor, we believe that change starts with each of us opening our front doors and building deeper connections with the people nearest to us, our neighbours,” said Sarah Friar, CEO of Nextdoor. “Canadians have a well-deserved reputation for being some of the kindest and most welcoming people in the world and we are thrilled to bring Nextdoor to Canada, our northern neighbour. The Canadian way of intrinsic neighbourliness is the Nextdoor way, and I could not be more excited to see how Canadians use Nextdoor to deepen relationships and real world interactions, connect with local organizations and businesses, and build thriving local communities.”
