DigiBC is a not-for-profit organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia. DigiBC's mission is to promote, support and accelerate the growth of BC's Creative Technology industry to the benefit of current and future generations.
We believe that a group of companies working together through an industry association has a more powerful voice than those working in isolation. We also believe that it is the collective responsibility of those currently in this amazing industry sector to help grow it further, 'paying it forward' for the benefit of smaller companies, and ultimately future generations of company owners and employees. This means helping to define and leverage short-term and long-term policy into growth and educating the general public and future generations about the value of our sector.
We achieve our goals through advocacy and policy engagement, growth programs, talent programs, events, and member benefit initiatives. For over 20 years, DigiBC has worked to grow the creative technology economy in the province.
Who We Represent
Our membership consists of 80+ companies from the Animation, Video Game, Visual Effects, and VR/AR/MR sectors, along with creative technology enablers and service providers. Our members include world-class creators, ranging from homegrown start-ups to globally recognized brands.
Our Vision & Mission
Our mission is to ensure that Creative Technology, as a cornerstone of the broader technology & media ecosystems, grows and thrives in the province for the benefit of current and future generations. Our vision is to make BC the world's leading centre for Creative Technology.
Since its inception, DigiBC has provided advocacy, education, and connection for the creative technology community. Today, DigiBC’s work on behalf of its member organizations is focused on the four pillars of Jobs, Talent, Diversity, and Community.
DigiBC engages with the provincial and federal government on a range of issues affecting our industry, including tax credits, fiscal policy, and labour force issues.
DigiBC works to ensure our industry has the talent it needs to continue to grow and thrive in BC, including consultation with post-secondary institutions on curriculum design, advocacy for work-integrated-learning opportunities and subsidies, and delivery of programs to help students in BC understand the range of career opportunities in creative technology.
DigiBC develops strategic partnerships with EDI-focused organizations in order to deliver educational programs, hosts EDI-focused events, and connects our member companies with resources to support and evolve their EDI policies and goals. In addition, DigiBC has signed on to Federal 50-30 with goals for both our staff and board.
Within DigiBC, member companies meet bi-weekly to address sector specific challenges and opportunities at the Games Group, HR Group, and Animation & VFX Group meetings. DigiBC also conducts and participates in a range of local and international events, including roundtables on relevant issues affecting our sector, job fairs, trade missions, webinars, B2B opportunities, professional development seminars, and networking functions.
