Ecobee is a Toronto-based company with approximately 300 Canadian employees. The company was started in 2007 bu Stuart Lombard who wanted to reduce his environmental footprint. He assembled a team of experts and they created the first ever smart thermostat to help you save energy when heating or cooling your home.

While Ecobee started as a Canadian company, unfortunately it is no longer Canadian owned. It was acquired by Generac, a company based in the United States in November 2021. However, Ecobee still has a strong presence in Canada and since it is the only smart thermostat with a Canadian connection, it is swill a worthwile brand to consider if you are looking for a smart thermostat.
