Tyler Farmer

Manager, Business Transformation & Partnerships at ICTC


Not-for-profit professional based out of Ottawa, by way of Nova Scotia, working to strengthen Canada’s digital advantage in the global economy by bringing together industry, education, and policy makers to cultivate innovative digital solutions.

Prior to joining the Information & Communications Technology Council (ICTC), I worked in Atlantic Canada's economic development and tech eco-system leading world-class programs and projects focused on demand-side innovation, skill development, and labour market research. Through this journey, I remain passionate about tech (specifically its intersection with traditional industries), digital privacy, and supporting Canadian businesses.

- Steve Jobs

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead
