Netflix To Open Office In Canada
Netflix is set to make a new home for itself in Canada by opening a new corporate office in the North American country soon. The office is expected to be setup mostly in Toronto or Vancouver.
The move by the online-video streaming giant comes a decade after Canadians invited Netflix into their homes for the first time. It had begun filming their first original production in Ontario in 2012. Netflix has over seven million Canadian subscribers and recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary in Canada.
The Canadian office will be in addition to Netflix’s production hub in Toronto which was set up in 2019. Netflix said its growing local presence will help it share Canadian stories more authentically with the world, whether through the development of original content or through co-production and licensing opportunities.
Netflix has already spent more than C$2.5 billion on productions in the country since 2017. In the process, it also built relationships with so many talented directors, screenwriters, actors, producers, animators and more.
The video-streaming service provider is adding the Canadian office to its ever growing international presence.
It had opened a French office last year and is on track to set up an office in Italy in the second half of 2021. The company reportedly has 21 corporate offices around the world, including Amsterdam and Rome. It also has offices in the UK, Netherlands, India, Mexico, and Australia.
How windshields are replaced
- Replacing a car windshield takes a special skill set and tools
- Tanner Peters of Peakview Auto Glass creates oddly satisfying Tik Toks of the process
- This is his process step-by-step

The following is a transcription of the video.
How windshields are replaced.
Here’s how the process works.
First, the new windshield is cleaned.
And the stickers are removed.
An abrasive pad is used to clean any oils, dirt, or residue.
Then an activator is applied around the edges.
This helps the glue stick to the windshield.
A urethane glue is then applied along the edges.
Urethane is used because it cures quickly and weather seals the glass.
While the windshield is prepped the damaged windshield can be removed from the car.
First, the wiper blades are removed along with any pieces that obstruct the windshield’s ability to be removed.
A knife is used to cut the existing glue.
Then an extractor is used to cut out the bottom of the glass which is impossible to reach with the knife.
The windshield is lifted from the car and the residue is scraped off.
Suction cups are used to carry the new windshield as it gets installed onto the car.
After 30 minutes, the car is safe to drive.
