Federal Budget 2017 The Innovation and Skills Plan

The central story line in Budget 2017 is "making Canada a world-leading centre for innovation, to help create more good, well-paying jobs, and help strengthen and grow the middle class." As an innovation budget, there were many aspects that signalled the growing support for the technology industry in Canada and alignment with the recommendations set out in the BC Tech Association’s 4 Point Plan. We have attempted to capture the most salient aspects of Budget 2017 as it pertains to the BC Tech community.

Inspired by the Tech Community, Inspiring the Tech Community.

The BC Tech Association is guided by our mission to make BC the best place to grow a tech company. For more than 20 years, BC Tech (formerly the BCTIA) has been providing opportunities for the tech industry to collaborate, learn, and grow together. We are dedicated to connecting companies, developing talent, sharing stories, and advocating on behalf of tech companies to keep our industry thriving.

Since our founding in 1993, the tech industry has quintupled to nearly $25 billion in revenue. In that time, we have played a privileged role in supporting the growth of the tech community that now includes over 9,000 companies, employing more than 90,000 people, and that has been one of the strongest contributors to BC’s economic growth over the past decade.

We serve as a platform to grow the tech ecosystem, building programs and initiatives that uphold our core values: Be of Service, Succeed Together, Pay it Forward.
