According to the Government of Canada’s job bank site as of December 2021, employment in this field is expected to grow at a higher rate than the national average. It is anticipated that there will be a demand for workers as Canadian firms upgrade their IT infrastructure in order to remain competitive and digitally secure. In addition, technological innovations and continued growth in areas such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, Blockchain, telecommunications, and the information and culture services industry (such as virtual and augmented reality), will provide plentiful opportunities for graduates.

The city of Toronto has become North America’s fastest growing technology hub and is home to many world-renowned companies like Microsoft, Google, Facebook, IBM, Cisco, Twitter and Amazon. Many of these tech giants are drawn to Ontario’s capital because of the wide pool of available talent. According to Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis (CBRE), 82,100 tech jobs were added between 2012 and 2017.

Not only are the skills required to thrive in this occupation generally universal, but the country’s tech-friendly and welcoming attitude towards international students provides motivated graduates with access to promising employment opportunities in the industry.
