VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Nov. 3, 2015) - Canada's largest tech conference will feature the man described as Canada's most powerful business person.

OMERS Ventures CEO John Ruffolo, voted #1 in Canadian Business magazine's 2014 list of Canada's 50 Most Powerful Business People, will be onstage at the third annual Cantech Investment Conference (Cantech16) on January 26, 2016 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Mr. Ruffolo and OMERS Ventures have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into Canada's surging tech scene. The fund's portfolio includes investments in technology leaders such as Hootsuite, Shopify, BuildDirect, Vidyard and Vision Critical.

"In the startup world, everyone knows Ruffolo," said Canadian Business. "But what he represents -- a fix to Canada's chronic lack of VC -- should matter as much to Bay Street as it does to entrepreneurs. OMERS doesn't just talk about innovation -- it pays for it."
