Are you Indigenous and living in British Columbia?

Do you already have basic computer skills?

Are you ready for an intense, fast-paced and fun learning experience that will give you the skills and networks you need to launch a career in technology? Then Futures in Innovation and Technology is for you.

The Futures Program provides funding for Indigenous peoples to take advanced level training in a specialized technology-related career path. Our grads are emerging as web developers, digital marketers, designers, GIS/ GPS Mappers and much more.

Students of the Futures program take their training through one of our many great industry training partners. The Technology Council provides you with the following:

  • Financial support (tuition, travel, daycare, portion of living expenses)
  • Support with program application
  • Career networking

We believe that technology is not only a great career option, but can support and underpin many aspects of Indigenous self-determination and nationhood. We envision our grads not only finding rewarding careers in the technology sector, but also returning home to support the digital needs of your Nation.

We want to hear from you!

First Nations Technology Council - COVID 19

Technology is more important than ever to Indigenous peoples. We need access to stay informed, connected and supported. In BC, the majority of First Nations communities don’t have the access required to utilize online platforms that most Canadians are relying on during COVID-19.

We want to hear from you today so that we can collectively advocate for better access to technology now! By answering these questions and sharing your opinion, you will help us to make clear asks to all levels of government and industry in the pursuit of closing the digital divide in this time of crisis. Thank you for participating and making your voice heard.

Please stay healthy. Sending you and your family all my best,
