Talent Fuels Tech is a strategy for how the Toronto region can win the global race for top tech talent.
We are pleased to be joined by the Hon. Mitzie Hunter, Ontario Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development, as well as tech industry leaders from ventures, corporations and post-secondary institutions who were instrumental in driving this vital work.
The Toronto region’s tech sector is booming, but to sustain that growth it needs to attract and retain in-demand talent with the right skills and mindsets to succeed in a fast-changing economy. MaRS has led an in-depth labour market analysis of the tech industry in the GTA, drawing on its innovation ecosystem partners and capturing the views of both employers and talent.
Based on these findings, MaRS brought together industry, academia, government, and the broader innovation ecosystem to create a strategy for making the GTA even more attractive to people with the skills needed to build the next generation of breakthrough companies.
**The strategy launch will open with an overview of the report findings, followed by a panel discussion with industry leaders.**
