Information and Communications Technologies

A defining characteristic of Canada’s ICT sector is the rapidly increasing rate of innovation and productivity that continually occurs—not only in the industries that produce hardware, software, components, content and services used in ICT applications, but also in the sectors that benefit from the adoption and use of these technologies. Canada's internationally renowned ICT strengths include wireless and telecom, game development and data management & analysis. Canadian ICT companies are at the forefront of innovative enabling technology solutions such as machine-to-machine technology for vertical sectors such as the extractive and infrastructure industries. With leading innovative solutions and diverse expertise in the ICT sector, Canada is well positioned to seize emerging global opportunities.
