“It is an honour for Unity to be recognized for its positive impact on the Canadian economy,” said André Gauthier, director of development and head of Unity studio in Montreal said in a release. “It’s important to me that Unity has a thriving office in Montréal because it’s home to a dynamic community comprised of top tech talent, gaming studios, and indie creators.
