Event details

Canada’s digital landscape has exploded over the past two decades, with home-grown companies like Shopify, Wealthsimple, and Element AI claiming their rightful place on the world stage. Meanwhile, global companies continue to tap into Canada’s unique ecosystem of highly-qualified, diverse talent and business-friendly conditions.

Amazon, for example, recently announced 3,500 new jobs in Toronto and Vancouver by 2023, while hot spots like Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, and Kitchener-Waterloo are rising through the ranks of CBRE’s Top Tech Talent Markets. 

Is this a sign of things to come? Is Canada ready to capitalize on this unique moment to ensure prosperity for businesses and tech talent? 

Join us for a discussion with business leaders on the future of Canadian tech, which skills are in most demand, how they’re innovating for the future, and what the country can do to prepare for the decade ahead.
