Text Box: Join Today! We are currently seeking IT professionals and Non-IT professionals who are currently working in Ontario for an Expert Panel.

 Did you know?

In the course of their careers, few workers have the chance to stay abreast of new technology and the role it plays in creating strategic advantage or challenges.

You can help design training to be used by professionals and mid-level managers as they are prepared for roles of greater responsibility – you too can benefit from the training developed.

This training will enhance the capacity of all industries to embrace innovative technologies and boost the productivity factor in Ontario.


—Do you have at least two years of working experience as an IT or non-IT professional? —Do you work in Ontario? —Are you a Manager or HR professional responsible for hiring? —Would you like to be a collaborator on this project, and build a reputation as an innovator in the industry?
