What We Do
Our mission is to help ensure that IDM, as a cornerstone of the broader technology sector, grows and thrives in the province for the benefit of current and future generations. We are involved in ongoing discussions with the government regarding short and long-term policy development, and working with leaders in education to help shape the curriculum from kindergarten through post-secondary to help better equip BC students for fulfilling a career in IDM. We are engaged with programs to help grow the number and strength of IDM programs in the province, and hold a series of networking and professional development events. Member companies and their employees can take advantage of an ever-increasing number of member benefit programs.
