Default Canadian Based Cloud Services

I am looking for a Canadian owned and operated cloud backup service i can use for backing up my personal information on my computer. It must be both Headquartered in Canada and the servers must be within Canada.

I did come across these guys based in BC but never heard of them and was wondering if anyone else here has.

Cloud Backup Services for Small Business & Home Office | CloudPockets.com

Any other options would be great but don't bother suggesting things like Amazon, Google, Microsoft or Dropbox as i won't use any of those services as they don't meet the criteria.

I've got two computers in my basement. Gimme $40 and I'll let you store whatever you want on it. Just no porn. Already enough of that.

Wow, that's a real thing. And here I thought Canada Post was behind the times.

Just saw an ad on Youtube for "StoragePipe" online backup. Claims they are 100% Canadian owned/operated.

Not affiliated with the company (in fact, never heard of it until their ad on Youtube played back watching one of the LinusTechTips videos) -- just remembered this thread and thought you might want to seek them out.

Heh... noted, and there is no question that it's spam, but it's a direct response to the OP, and it seemed germane to current events WRT cloud storage so I let it pass. (Other mods might not agree with that though.... ;) ).

As long as it's a valid company then I appreciate that his post is left as it is invaluable information.
