Immigrants in the Alberta ICT professional workforce Survey closes June 15

By 2019, cumulative hiring requirements for ICT talent are expected to be over 17,000 in Alberta.  Using recent computing science enrollments in Canada, even if everyone came to Alberta to work, would not be able to fulfill the predicted hiring requirements.

Currently, approximately 31% of our workforce are immigrants (23,320 out of 74,530 ICT professionals employed in Alberta).

Using the Skill Framework for the Information Age (SFIA ---, international experience can be assessed and described using  an objective definition of skills and levels that have been accepted by organizations in 195 countries.   SFIA helps in recruitment, deployment, assessment, development, remuneration. 

CIPS Alberta is doing a study to determine if:

  • employers and immigrant services would use SFIA in the recruitment and deployment of internationally experienced ICT professionals.
  • Immigrants would have a SFIA assessment done of their skills to assist in obtaining an appropriate position

Please complete the short survey to provide us with the required information by June 15, 2015.
