The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) is hosting the first annual Tech Talent Summit.  In its recent forecast the Outlook 2011-2016 ICTC estimates estimated that starting now and into 2016 the Canadian ICT sector will experience a skills and labour shortage of more than 106,000.  As a result employers need to tap into a wider and more diverse highly-skilled talent pool.  

This summit will look at diversity and inclusion strategies, and best practices that have now become essential to organizations’ success and overall business performance.
