Fuelled by the explosive growth of established companies and new startups, the tech sector in the province is expected to hire more than 2000 employees in the next five years. However, we don’t currently have the required number of workers to fill this demand.

This talent gap means an abundance of job opportunities and a chance to chart your career path by trying different roles in the burgeoning tech sector. You don’t need to have a technical education or a particular personality type to succeed in the tech industry.  All you need is passion and a thirst to learn.
