Education Update

DigiBC continues to be very active on the education front and all of our programming supports the objectives we are focused on. These include:

• Ensure BC students and adult learners know that building an interesting and successful career in the creative tech sector is a viable option in BC.

Increase the domestic talent pool to continue the success of the sector in our province.

Support inclusion and diversity of talent who were previously underrepresented, such as women and indigenous people. We also recognize that diversity includes regional diversity and are reaching out to learners in all regions of the province.
