Definitely.  Off the top of my head, you've got
* Bell MTS Datacenters <-- https://www.bellmtsdatacentres.com/
* GSC <-- no online presence to speak of, weird.  I can't even find 
their sole webpage right now.
     - found these:  https://www.exg.ca/it-consulting  &  
* Les.net <-- https://les.net/data-center-co-location/ & 

There are a handful of smaller operations around the city that will host 
your box, but they tend to be an entire tier down from there, and not 
necessarily any cheaper.
