On January 22, 2016 our delegation will arrive Ottawa along with hundreds of women in tech from all across Canada.

“CAN-CWiC 2016 will unite technical women from across Canada for networking, mentoring and planning for Canada’s technical future.  The conference will inspire women at all points in their careers – from first year students to senior technical women with years of industrial experience.   The career fair will provide an excellent opportunity for companies to recruit technical talent from across Canada.”                                                                                           – CAN-CWiC
