  • Advancing Women in Engineering and Technology (AWET) is a former Sector Labour Market Partnership project funded through the Canada-BC Workforce Development Agreement.
  • TechAbility was a research and innovation project funded by the government of British Columbia and managed by ASTTBC. It assessed innovative and collaborative approaches for connecting career-oriented job seekers who had disabilities/diverse abilities to technical occupations in BC.
  • The BC Women in Technology (BCWiT) team is a core group of women ASTTBC registrants representing various disciplines in the technology field. BCWiT recognizes that it is critical to capture the interest of girls at a younger age with hands on events focused on career counselling.
  • The Young Professionals Group (YPG) promotes the development of individuals who’ve worked in the applied science technology profession for less than 10 years, and who are under the age of 40.
  • Expediting Technology Professionals Labor Market Integration (ETPLMI) Project (link to new page) is a collaborative project that aims to leverage the talents, skills and entrepreneurial spirit of technology professionals who come to Canada, as well as Canadian Armed Forces members and veterans, to work and contribute to innovation and growth in the Canadian economy.
