Our Story

Our journey began in 1992 as the Software Human Resources Council, a vital player in a network of sector councils supported by the Government of Canada's Sectoral Council Program. In 2006, we recognized our potential to shape Canada's digital destiny on a global scale. We underwent a significant transformation, becoming an independent, national, non-profit centre of expertise and renamed to the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC).

Rooted in government-backed origins, we now extend our reach to every province, supporting policymakers, driving practical research, and innovating solutions for the workforce and businesses.
