British Columbia's Tech Sector Faces Shortage of Skilled Workers
The British Columbia Tech Association has released a statement that the province’s rapidly growing technology sector is facing “talent crisis” and this crisis is limiting the growth of the sector and hence the tech companies are considering to relocate out of the British Columbia.

The BC’s tech sector employs 92700 people currently, which is much higher then the mining, forestry and oil-and-gas combined in the province. 

As per the BC’s Tech Association, the tech sector continues to offer employment opportunities that pay much more then what others offer. Various companies in the tech sector feel that the dearth of the talent is making it hard to fill major job openings.

Bill Tam, the president and the CEO of the BC’s technology association in an interview said, “It is the burning issue for most tech companies in the province. The thing that fuels growth in companies, especially in tech, is the human capital.”

As per the report nearly 17.2 percent of the undergraduate students in British Columbia are in tech-related sector as compared to the 19.9 percent in Alberta and 18.6 percent in Ontario. 

The Tech Association has asked the B.C. government to invest $100million in post-secondary institutions in the next 3 years so that the gap can be filled.
