The company says it controls more than 45 brands, including and Tinder, but it doesn't disclose a complete list of all of them.Still, its well-known brands have been part of the Canadian landscape for years. Chris Bennett worked in downtown Toronto, but he used to live outside of the city.
In 2011, Match Group acquired Ok Cupid, and in 2015, it bought the Vancouver-based dating site, Plenty of Fish, for 5 million US.
With about 2,000 dating services to choose from in North America and millions of users engaging in them, tales of searching digitally for a successful match — for life, or perhaps just for the night — are now so common they've become an intimate part of the way we live.
Canadians could have more options to choose from in coming years.
He says that, without Tinder, he may not have met his fiance when he was using the app two years ago."We're getting married July 20th," says Bennett.
"It's worked out really well."In its most recent quarterly report, Match Group says more than three million Tinder users pay for premium services and its total number of global subscribers across all brands soared 24 per cent to seven million.
