In Ontario, most ICT related occupations are not regulated, with the exception of software engineering.

Employment is determined by the demand, and qualification requirements. Employers often prefer to hire individuals who have certification or training in specific software and/or hardware.

The required skills and knowledge in ICT industries change rapidly according to technological advances. ICT professionals need to upgrade their skills regularly to stay relevant and competitive in their fields of expertise.

In the Toronto area, the key ICT clusters are: e-business, digital media, software, wireless telecommunications, distributive computing, creative and content development.

For successful workplace integration, internationally trained ICT professionals should try to extend their professional networking by attending career fairs for ICT workers, take enhanced language and communication training and look for ICT jobs in non-traditional ICT sectors.
