Career Focus Program

ICTC is pleased to announce that once again the Career Focus program experienced an overwhelmingly positive response. The total number of subsidies has been awarded, and we are no longer accepting further applications.

This program helps small and medium-sized organisations with some additional funding to include highly skilled young post-secondary graduates in their workplace and increase productivity. Career Focus also aids youth across Canada to build their employability capacity in ICT and develop their digital skills.

ICTC is truly grateful for the support received from our funding partner, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, as well as for the participation of employers and industry partners who have all contributed to the success of the Career Focus Program.

If you would like to receive information about our future initiatives we encourage you to sign up to the ICTC contact database or follow us via social media [@ictc_ctic or LinkedIn.]
