Member Benefits

Member marketplace

As a member, you will receive relevant, exclusive deals. Great things happen through collaboration. We encourage our members to extend incentives and special rates to fellow members – this is a perfect way to increase visibility, build your client base, and work collaboratively with the collective.

Personalized Onboarding

In this age of mediated communication, there is still value in a face-to-face meeting. After you’ve signed up, we meet with you to optimize your membership.

Get Connected and Stay Connected

A TECH MANITOBA membership means being part of a community. We facilitate ways for members to connect, exchange ideas and collaborate.

Access helpful resources

Get unlimited access to a repository of information you actually want - like labour market statistics specific to our tech sector; information on how to fast-track the hiring of foreign workers; a toolkit for gender parity and more.

Build Connections

Be a part of a dynamic network of innovative, diverse Manitoba businesses. We facilitate opportunities for you to network and collaborate with other movers and shakers. We’re your link to the local and international tech community, as we are members of organizations like the Canadian Digital Media Network and Tech Councils of North America.

Amplify your voice

In order to create a tech-friendly Manitoba we work with the provincial and the federal government, championing the causes you care about. We amplify your voice (with the right stakeholders in the room).

FACT: The ability to fast-track experienced foreign talent came about because TECH MANITOBA and other tech associations advocated for this important change.

Train and develop talent

We work closely with educational institutions from K-12 to universities and colleges to help prepare students for the future world of work and ultimately grow the tech talent pool in Manitoba. Building a talent pipeline is key to a thriving tech sector. TECH MANITOBA offers customized professional development training to member companies. You can also target qualified talent by posting your vacancies on our website. TECH MANITOBA members can post an unlimited number of positions while non-members can purchase individual postings or packages starting at $200.
