Work with ICTC
Information and Communications Technology Council, the Entertainment Software Association of Canada and Canada’s Digital Policy Forum, along with an alliance of talent stakeholders, have come together to form two Canadian Leadership Taskforces: Diversity and Inclusion and Education and Skills. The national taskforces will work collectively to drive action to achieve, at minimum, the objectives set out in our national strategy and be inclusive of additional impending mandates and strategies for Canada’ s innovation. The taskforces are comprised of leaders across industries, government and education, each making a commitment to be part of the change and support the achievement of at least one of the objectives.

Cyber Leadership Council
As tomorrow’s leaders and innovators, youth are a vital talent pool to meet cyber security skill demands in the digital economy. Additionally, regardless of what career path youth choose, ensuring they develop cyber security skills in school is paramount to equip them with critical digital and cyber skills as the Internet of Things permeates their everyday lives. Recognizing the importance of this, through our Focus on IT (FIT) program, we have introduced CyberTitan, Canada’s Cyber Security Education Initiative, where we will continue to work with secondary and post-secondary schools across Canada to develop relevant student skills that are essential to their seamless transition into post-secondary ICT education pathways, with the hope they will graduate to employment in fields that drive Canada’s economic prosperity and innovation.
This would not be possible without a phenomenal group of dedicated cyber security leaders working together with us at the helm to realize this vision. We are excited to introduce ICTC’s National Cyber Security Leadership Council on Youth and Education. Together, we will create pathways for youth and educators to promote cyber security learning opportunities.

National Digital Talent Alliance
As the taskforces initiate the goals and objectives to move talent strategies into action for Canada, broader collaboration, commitment and action are all increasingly paramount as we each have a role to play in securing Canada’s digital future. Industry, education, not-for-profits, associations and governments are all needed to help Canada innovate and prosper. With this in mind, and to complement the work of the national taskforces, we have created the National Digital Talent Alliance.
