eTalent Canada: Transforming the Digital Landscape for Job Seekers, Employers, and Educators


In a world where digital interactions dominate our daily lives, navigating through a multitude of applications and platforms can often feel like an overwhelming task. Whether you're a job seeker looking to land your dream role, an employer searching for the perfect candidate or an educator teaching essential skills, the process can be inefficient and time-consuming.  

To solve these challenges, ICTC introduced eTalent Canada to Canadians over a year ago, revolutionizing the digital landscape by consolidating internal and external applications into one user-friendly platform. Today, eTalent Canada is packed with even more new and exciting features designed to enhance the experience for job seekers, employers, and educators.


Pioneering Sustainability


As part of our ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, we are proud to introduce the Sustainable ICT tool. This tool assists organizations in designing, developing, adopting, and managing digital technologies more sustainably. In an era where sustainability is taking on a more central role in the digital economy, the tool provides invaluable guidance to organizations seeking to reduce their environmental footprint and operate more responsibly.


Fostering Gender Equity


Equity and inclusivity also play an increasingly pivotal role in our rapidly changing economy, and eTalent Canada reflects this trend by fostering gender equity in the digital sphere. Our Gender Equity in the Digital Economy assessment tool is an essential resource for organizations looking for strategies to improve gender equity in their digital initiatives. As part of our Ambassador Program, this assessment tool empowers organizations to take proactive steps toward creating a more inclusive and diverse workforce.


“I found the gender equity assessment very helpful, as it contributed to our development of an effective EDI plan. The assessment was comprehensive but simple—something I was able to take back, reflect upon, and then put into action. In my opinion, it's a very useful tool, especially for organizations that are starting out on their journey of commitment to gender equity.” — Lisa Muise, Senior Director of Human Resources at CloudKettle Inc.  


Streamlining Recruitment and Growth


For employers, eTalent Canada offers an array of improved resources to streamline the hiring process and support business growth. From wage subsidies to customizable training programs, employers can access a suite of tools that enhance productivity and foster talent in their organizations. Additionally, our revamped platform provides HR teams the resources they need to stay ahead in today's competitive job market.


“As an early-stage startup, you wear a lot of hats and have a lot on your plate. It was a relief that ICTC was there for funding support and to help find hires that could take on some of the work. The funding is essential for small startups and entrepreneurs, it's very powerful and impactful.” — Naghmi Shireen, Co-Founder & CEO at Studio Xplor Designs Inc.


Building Foundations for Career Readiness


Recognizing the importance of digital literacy for today's workforce, eTalent Canada has reimagined resources for educators. Our K-12 initiatives help educators equip students with essential digital skills to jumpstart their career journeys. Behind the scenes, eTalent Canada prioritizes data integrity and security, ensuring that user information remains protected at all times.  


"ICTC's multifaceted contributions, from competitions to training resources, have significantly raised cybersecurity awareness and engagement among New Brunswick students and educators alike. The province is well positioned to develop homegrown cybersecurity talent and lead in this critical domain thanks to ICTC's steadfast support and expertise." — Adam Binet, Centre of Excellence in Digital Innovation Lead at the New Brunswick Department of Education and Early Childhood Development
