ICTC's DEEP program connects Canadian employers with newly trained and upskilled talent looking to grow their careers in an ICT or digital field in Canada.


Employers across all sectors in Canada needed to fill nearly one million vacant positions in the second quarter of 2022. Yet, people from underrepresented groups have difficulties finding employment in their areas of expertise.

ICTC, in partnership with Microsoft Canada, established a program that creates pathways to in-demand jobs and encourages successful integration of underrepresented groups into the digital economy.

ICTC's DEEP program bridges the digital divide for job seekers looking to add to their existing technical skills and diversify their professional experience. This one-year innovative employment-readiness initiative connects Canadian employers with newly trained and upskilled individuals from underrepresented groups across the country.
