Talent Programs

Closing the Talent Gap in BC's Tech Industry.

BC Tech Talent Programs are designed to support the growth and development of tech companies in our province by increasing the size and quality of the tech talent pool and by helping companies hire, train and retain their people.

Educational Institutions

The home team advantage.

British Columbia is home to some spectacular universities, colleges and technical schools that are producing top graduates and our industry's future workforce. We are fortunate to have a strong relationship with BC schools at an elementary, secondary, and post-secondary level, and to partner with them on initiatives like Talent Days, the promotion of tech careers, and the BC Tech Scholarship Program.
