Our history

Bernard Dupuis contacts David Théberge, his childhood friend. He wants to start his own group insurance firm and invites David to join him to go into business together.

David is very enthusiastic about the idea, but he wants to expand the financial services proposed by Bernard. For him, it’s out of the question to sell Excel spreadsheets to his network of clients. David believes that the solution for standing out from the competition is to offer free HR management software when clients subscribe to their insurance and group annuities program. They therefore decide to create their first software: CangarooHR.

Since they have no knowledge of software development, they call on Lee McDonald, who becomes the third co-founder of the business, and IT & Development Director.

The business model connecting insurance and group annuities with HR software development has therefore existed since the very beginning.

Our growth

Although the name “Cangaroo” was determined in April 2015, it wasn’t until the month of August of the same year that the company was officially established.
In December 2015, the website was launched. In 2016 and 2017, the growth was explosive: we had to expand the team at all costs! In December 2017, the company served over 130 clients and had 10 permanent employees.

In 2018, a second workspace became available for the whole technology team, in Montreal. The future of Cangaroo is promising, because you help make it better. It’s thanks to your trust that we can create more powerful software to help you in your daily tasks.
