The Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec) is a not-for-profit organization governed by a select group of technology executives that form a volunteer board of directors. SRCTec is a coalition of local government, industry partners and high education institutions interested in attracting tech based investment into the “Region” (including the District of Mission, City of Abbotsford and Chilliwack, the Township of Langley and the City of Maple Ridge).
MISSION – The Sumas Regional Consortium for High Tech (SRCTec), as part of the Tech Starts Here initiative and in partnership with the District of Mission, has launched a new job board portal: fraservalleytechjobs.com. The cost of living continues to rise in B.C. so as a result, more people are moving to the east Fraser Valley to save on residential expenses and cost of doing business. This job board is designed to continue to create a base of technical talent in the Region by increasing awareness, skilled tech training and creating local tech jobs. Fraser Valley Tech Jobs caters to both employers and employees. It is designed will bridge the gap between employers looking to hire and local tech talent looking to lose the commute.
Raymond Szabada, Chairman of the Board & CEO, SRCTec, noted: “Our new job board will allow local tech talent to connect with local employers and begin to facilitate attraction of outside talent. Fraser Valley Tech Jobs will allow employers and employees to realize and tap-in to the potential of the tech industry in the Fraser Valley. We’re excited to be a part of the evolution and growth of the Fraser Valley Tech industry; this is one of many projects SRCTec is introducing to the Region”
Stacey Crawford, Economic Development Officer, District of Mission added: “Over the past year, we have worked closely with SRCTec in the spirit of solution-oriented collaboration to address a challenge voiced by many Fraser Valley businesses: How do we attract and recruit technology talent to our region? Today, we are proud to introduce the first step in addressing this question with the launch of fraservalleytechjobs.com”
