VIATEC (Victoria Innovation, Advanced Technology and Entrepreneurship Council), started in 1989. Our mission is to serve as the one-stop hub that connects people, knowledge and resources to grow and promote the Greater Victoria technology sector (Victoria's biggest industry).
We work closely with our members to offer a variety of events, programs and services. In addition, VIATEC serves as the front door of the local tech sector and as its spokesperson. To better support local innovators, we acquired our own building (Fort Tectoria) where we offer flexible and affordable office space to emerging local companies along with a gathering/event space for local entrepreneurs.
Regional and Sector Promotion
Serve as the primary promoter and definitive source of information on the local technology sector. (Technology is Victoria's #1 industry with a $4.06 Billion Annual Revenue, a $5.22 Billion Economic Impact and over 16,775 employees across 995 high-tech companies - and growing!)
Raise awareness of the career opportunities available within local technology companies by targeting experienced workers and recent graduates while also promoting technology careers and innovation to students.

Offer top-quality networking and community building opportunities by connecting members through events and introductions, along with topic-specific information as requested.
