With Ottawa’s thriving technology ecosystem, finding the top talent to help companies grow is becoming more challenging. The Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) predicts that Ottawa can fill over 9000 new ICT jobs by 2019, which will make the market that more competitive for employers.
In response to this, Invest Ottawa launched its Work in Ottawa campaign in the fall of 2016. Since then, the campaign has received millions of impressions and Invest Ottawa has built a database of nearly 3000 job seekers.
