Email is still the primary source of online communication, despite the rise in popularity of social media. Companies rely upon email rather than other kinds of communication because they value privacy and professionalism. It is also valuable and valid in legal matters. Emails can be tracked, monitored, and automated, making email a more valuable marketing tool than ever. It is the best way to conduct a one-on-one conversation with potential leads. These are just a few reasons why Nili is the perfect choice as a free email account provider in Canada. It is designed for business, particularly for the unique Canadian market.
The National Email Address
Although there are many free, high-quality email providers like Hotmail (by Microsoft), Yahoo Canada (by Yahoo) and Gmail (by Google), many countries prefer to have their own national email account providers. For example, China has sina.com, South Korea has naver.com, and India has rediff.com. Why is it then that Canada doesn’t have a national platform for email accounts?
Canadians rely predominantly on American email services provided by Yahoo, Hotmail, and Gmail, and these providers serve most of the Canadian market.
Some Canadians use their internet provider’s email address
Some Canadians use the internet address from their internet provider, such as Rogers, Bell, Telus, Shaw, and Primus, amongst many more. For example, if you get your internet service from Bell, the company will offer you a free email account with the suffix of sympatico.ca or bell.ca.
What is the issue?
First of all, Yahoo provided Rogers’ email, and Hotmail provided Bell’s emails. And if you look closer, you will see that the major players are providing email accounts for the rest of Canada’s internet providers if they did not create a very basic by themselves.
Further, you will encounter problems when changing your internet provider. For example, if you want to move from Bell to Rogers, you will lose your email account, and your email address is tied to your current internet provider.
We need a national platform that doesn’t force us to change our email accounts.
What is the solution?
Nili offers email addresses to Canadians that are hosted, managed, supported, and maintained by Canadians. Our service is fast and reliable. By using Nili, you won’t lose your email address if you change your internet service provider.
We do our best to serve our communities. Save time, save your address, and rely upon Canadian email communications with Nili.

Are the email servers located ONLY in Canada? That is my biggest issue as we consider switching to a Canadian supplier who is independent of the ISP.
Not all Canadians live in Canada! Indeed some of our servers are located outside the country to serve our international visits.
But all messages store in Canada!

I am considering to switch to Nili to have a Canadian provider, but a but sorry to see you don’t offer your website in the two canadians official languages, even if your email offers many languages, your website don’t even have a french version. Is it planned soon?
I have same concern. I am truly considering doing the switch. I like the Nili interface, but in the same time, i know my wife won’t use it if there is no french version for Nili.
Second thing : servers are all located in Canada?
Thanks, enjoying it so far. 🙂
Servers are distributed because not all Canadians live in Canada.
But all messages store in Canada!
Providing a French version of the website is not a big deal. We can translate the content and make it live!
The concern is we have no French support at the moment and creating a French website make the assumption of French support too.
We will add both in a same time!
Why can’t I find any information on upgrading from a free account? Unless I know what I am getting for the cost I’m not going to even consider upgrading.
What features to the interface are in the upgrade?
Are there improved options for CONTACTS, SEARCHING, SORTING or anything else?
