Investing in the skills that fuel innovation is key to ensuring strong employment prospects for Canadian workers and powering economic growth for our country.

The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is currently undertaking a 3-year study seeking to identify the economic and labour impacts resultant from the increasing permeation of technology across all sectors of the economy.

A central component of this initiative, ICTC has launched the first of three labour market surveys that will highlight and expand on the recruitment, employment and skill needs of Canadian employers. Particularly, the survey will address the demand for digital occupations across the Canadian ecosystem as technology increasingly permeates all sectors of the economy. Specifically, it will seek to identify key digital occupations and their corresponding skill needs until 2023, under seven (7) high-growth industries: ICT, clean tech, clean resources, agri-foods, health/biotech, digital industries, and advanced manufacturing.

If you are an employer operating in any of the noted seven industries, we value your participation in this Employment and Skill Needs Survey.

Please access the survey here.

The survey will take approximately 15 – 20 minutes to complete, and is best completed by a senior representative of your organization that is familiar with talent and hiring needs.

Once again this year, CIO Association members will judge the first round of nominations for the Ingenious Awards, selecting the semi-finalists in each of the 6 categories.  CIOCAN Past-President, Gary Davenport, will coordinate the judging which will take place from mid-July to early August.  If you are interested in joining this team, and you are available at that time, please contact Heather Jones.

ITAC, the Information Technology Association of Canada, has officially launched the 2018 edition of its Ingenious Awards Program.  The program honours excellence in the innovative use of information and communications technology (ICT) to achieve greater productivity efficiency or other enterprise goals.

The deadline for nominations is June 29, 2018.
