What does VIATEC do ?

Our Mission is to support the Greater Victoria Tech Sector in growing to over $10 billion by 2030.

We do this by cultivating the most cohesive tech community in the world by providing resources to tackle shared opportunities and challenges while boosting a sense of belonging and shaping our region.

VIATEC started in 1989, when a community of technologists and entrepreneurs joined together to share information on how to build companies and support the tech industry.

Since then Victoria’s economy has changed dramatically and its brand has been transformed.

We work closely with our members to offer a variety of events, programs and services.

We focus on 4 things:

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.

VIATEC serves as the primary promoter and trusted source of information on the local technology sector.
