InterAxon makes really interesting EEG stuff, which they call "Thought 
Controlled Computing".  They are most famous for their project during 
the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, when they made a system whereby users could 
control lights at the CN Tower and Niagara Falls with their minds.  But 
they've done lots of other cool things as well.  Now apparently they are 
hiring (presumably for Toronto location), see below.

Sadly I'm not qualified :-(.  Reply to jobs at interaxon.ca if you're 
interested.
