Canada Learning Code Career Collective

A private, member-based career platform for early to mid-career professionals who continue to be marginalized in tech-related roles.

The Career Collective seeks to explicitly welcome cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and others who are marginalized because of their gender identity as well as Black, Indigenous and other Racialized people, people in low-income communities, and newcomers.

INTERESTED?

The top skills for a given role have changed by about 25% in Canada between 2015 and today and are on pace to shift by about 40% by 20251.

Why does this matter? The acceleration of technology means everyone, including you, needs to increase their fluency to work, build and live with technology. But most people don’t know where to start and don’t know what they need in order to upskill and meet their professional development goals.


That’s where we come in. To meaningfully support you as your trusted guide, customizing our approach to your needs and outcomes.

About Canada Learning Code: Career Collective

The Career Collective is a private, member-based career platform created by Canada Learning Code. It is designed to meaningfully support early to mid-career professionals, as your trusted guide, to help you navigate from your first experience with us through to a pathway toward your career outcomes (which we can figure out together!). We aim to do this through regular digital touch points, cohorting, 1:1 mentorship, in-person meet-ups, and more.

The Career Collective is undergoing a pilot program in Summer 2024, with the intention to build together with the first-ever admitted cohort and to evolve for future offerings.

Is this for you?

The Career Collective is designed in a way that seeks to explicitly welcome those who have historically been and continue to be marginalized and underrepresented in tech, with a focus on cis women, trans women, trans men, non-binary people, and others who are marginalized because of their gender identity as well as Black, Indigenous and other Racialized people, people in low-income communities, and newcomers.

  • “I’m early on in my career and looking for guidance”
  • “I’m looking for new tech-related skills to support my career growth”
  • “I have an understanding of the evolving tech landscape, but need professionals to connect with to make decisions about my place in it”
  • “I’m interested in networking and learning with others”
  • “I’m not sure if I belong in tech— I wish I saw more people like me leading this industry”

In other words, the Career Collective is for early-mid career professionals who are aware of the evolving tech landscape and are looking for trusted guidance to intentionally navigate a changing workforce to take action towards their career goals. Sound like you?
