Future Plans of Canada ICT

This planet has become a global village and to fulfill the future IT technology needs worldwide we need to expand the resources to the international market.

A new ICTC report, Digital Economy Supply: Canada's Post-Secondary Education Stream, shows that 216,000 ICT roles will need to be filled in Canada by 2021. As one of the fastest growing demographic groups in Canada, the report estimates that by 2021 the Indigenous workforce in ICT will increase by 45,000. By 2026 that number could be 72,000 and as high as 103,500 by 2031.

Predicting the future needs, Canada is one of the best market for Pakistani IT Companies to secure outsourcing business.
