AI for Future Business Challenge

How can AI be leveraged to improve efficiency, production and/or effectiveness within traditional sectors?



Awareness and capacity building for AI talent development significantly trails employer demand, creating considerable impacts on both the economy and society. Despite news reports of AI skills shortages and job opportunities, learning pathways and career strategies aren’t all that clear to today’s youth – and in addition, interested students face a dearth of learning opportunities.

The AI Pathways MadeByAI campaign is a TECHNATION Future Workforce Development initiative that will spread the word about the endless possibilities of today’s AI careers and post-secondary educational opportunities.

We want students and businesses to get excited about how AI is bringing innovation to everything – environment, healthcare, entertainment, retail, mobility, marketing, customer experience, our social lives, and more. 

As Canada’s national ICT business association, (formerly ITAC, the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC) champions the development of a robust and sustainable digital economy in Canada. A vital connection between business and government, we provide our members with the advocacy, networking and professional development services that help them to thrive nationally and compete globally.
