PacifiCan invests over $2M through First Nations Technology Council for tech training

PacifiCan has made an over $2M investment to support the Digital Horizons technology employment training program. The program will be delivered by the First Nations Technology Council and will prepare Indigenous people to work in the information and communications technology (ICT) sector. The programming will be culturally grounded, designed, and led by Indigenous people. Over 700 Indigenous people will be able to take part in the program and prepare to pursue a career or start their own business in ICT. “With the support of Digital Horizons, we will also be able to offer valuable career pathway services and ensure Indigenous program graduates can access mentors, internship opportunities, and careers in BC and beyond,” said First Nations Technology Council CEO Natiea Vinson.
