Why Join VIATEC?

By joining VIATEC, you will support and belong to a technology community that tackles shared opportunities and challenges while boosting a sense of belonging and shaping our region.

Our benefits and services will assist your company in growing your talent, telling your stories through promotion, educational seminars and VIATEC’s own exclusive VIATEC Academy to help build stronger leaders in the Greater Victoria area. Plus, so many more initiatives and benefits! (Continue reading this page).

We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all members and employees.

Cultivating a cohesive community

We’d like to thank the on-going support of our members since 1989. For every membership dollar VIATEC receives, we are able to leverage that 7x and we turn the $300k in annual membership fees into over $2.1 million.

This means we are able to invest time, money and resources into events, in-depth studies and analysis, peer groups, promotional efforts, and media relations while also unlocking program funding from the Federal and Provincial government.

Thanks to your support, Greater Victoria is now known as a tech hub and we are attracting new talent and leadership, along with assisting entrepreneurs with building new companies and scaling up the existing ones. It’s made a huge difference and it’s because of support like yours.

To find out more about membership contact info@viatec.ca.

We hope to see you soon!

Companies with business interests on Vancouver Island, who strongly believe in supporting VIATEC’s initiatives by providing additional financial contributions and by taking a leadership role in the local technology community, may join as a Community Builder.
