I'm assuming you're referring to the building in Canary Wharf, London? Canada Square was built by Canadian real estate firm Olympia & York and tried to re-create a Canadian style office tower complex. It took its cues chiefly from downtown Toronto.

The whole area has a lot of Canadian connections. The subway stop is called Canada Water, and sits not far from 'Canada Dock', so called due to large scale trans-Atlantic shipping that took place from the 1900s onward between London and Canada.
