Future Workforce Development

Our vision is to help develop digital talent inside and outside the tech industry.

Through up-skilling and re-skilling programs, we are bridging the gap of digital skills needed now and for the future.

Canada’s digital economy benefits from many of our strengths, but our prosperity relies on a workforce with the digital skills to keep our companies and nation competitive in an ever changing global market. To help ensure this, we are working to inspire young people to pursue technology careers by advising them on technical education requirements and learning outcomes.

Simultaneously, we are focusing on guiding those in non-technical fields or under-represented groups to attain the required skills so they can transition into tech careers. These initiatives will help increase diversity within the tech industry, shape public policy and in turn support, expand and enhance Canada’s tech workforce.
