DigiBC - The Interactive & Digital Media Industry Association of British Columbia - is a member-supported, non-profit organization, based in Vancouver, BC, Canada. We were incorporated in 2010 and have previous history under the two banners of the Wireless Information Network (WIN) and New Media BC. We represent the creative tech sector which is made up of the video games and interactive, visual effects, animation, and VR/AR industries.
Our members include world-class companies such as EA Vancouver, Sony Imageworks, Animal Logic, Microsoft, ILM, Relic Entertainment, The Coalition (Microsoft), WildBrain Studios (formerly DHX) and many others. These companies have at least one thing in common - a balanced mix of creative and tech roles across their employee base. They combine amazing creative and cutting-edge technology to create fantastic worlds, stories and experiences for audiences around the world. These innovative products include video gaming for PC, mobile and VR platforms, animation, VFX, and VR/AR.
Collectively, BC has over 600 digital media companies, which employ over 16,000 people and generate $2.3 billion in annual sales – making us one of the most significant contributors to British Columbia’s economic well-being.
