Digital Literacy in Canada

  • Estimates say that around 84% of jobs in Canada currently require the use of a computer and basic technical skills (Information and Communications Technology Council, 2016) and that even low-skilled jobs increasingly require a basic level of digital literacy (Essential Skills Ontario).
  • The Information and Communications Technology Council says that there will be a demand to fill 216,000 jobs by 2021. Job growth in ICT (Information and Communications) is growing far faster than the overall economy.
  • Many working-age Canadians struggle with problem-solving in technology-rich environments. Among them, the proportion is higher in underrepresented groups in the Canadian workforce, such as Indigenous peoples, immigrants, language minorities, and 16-24-year-olds (Statistics Canada, 2013).
