Our goal is to proactively address the long-term talent and skills requirements of Canadian businesses, government and organizations. We are creating the skills for the digital economy and growing the talent pipeline. We inspire young people to choose technology careers, help transform education to accelerate the flow of talented people from all backgrounds into technology careers, support diversity in the industry, and help shape public policy to support the growth of talent.

ITAC Talent has brought together Canada’s leading employers to rally and catalyze industry to address and take responsibility for the significant shortfall in technology skills today which is predicted to increase over the next 10 years unless we set ourselves ambitious goals and work together.

Our vision is to ensure that Canada remains one of the most digitally enabled nations.

Our mission is to improve the talent pool, skills and diversity to ensure Canada has the 21st century skills and talent for growth of the digital economy.
