Posted by: Gavin Au-Yeung Date: November 9, 2021 Category: Blog

A distinction that is welcome news for many who are seeking employment in the sector. Continue reading to learn more about Calgary's tech hub and how newcomers can take advantage of new employment opportunities.

Change in Calgary

Demand for tech-related work has been rapidly growing in Alberta's most populated city. In fact, the number of tech companies in Calgary has more than doubled in recent years. According to the Alberta Enterprise Corporation, Calgary had 1,238 tech companies in 2018, increasing to 3,083 by 2020. The data also suggests that startup companies are also on the rise. Between 2018 and 2020, companies with 25 or more employees rose from 13 percent to 25 percent. 

Educational institutions, such as the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT), are also capitalizing on this tech growth. Hoping to teach thousands interested in the sector, the school announced the School of Advanced Digital Technology in the heart of downtown Calgary last year. Companies are also taking notice and hoping to invest in the city. RBC Bank recently announced that they are bringing 300 new tech jobs to Calgary.

With COVID, working from home is no longer an exclusive perk of working in the tech industry. As a result, tech companies have to find new ways to attract skilled workers. All this points to good news for job seekers and tech professionals in Alberta. Skilled newcomers with tech experience can undoubtedly benefit from the thousands of jobs that will continue to be available.
