Web Developer Career Spotlight

One of today's fastest growing careers, web development plays a critical role in businesses and organizations across all sectors helping them to achieve their objectives through creation, management and optimization of websites, e-commerce platforms and web and mobile applications. According to data from EMSI Labour Marketing Analytics, the job market for web developers in Canada is set to grow by 7.3% by 2026 and as high as 9.3% in the province Quebec.

As COVID-19 radically changes our reality, more and more businesses are switching to e-commerce. Those without a strong e-commerce portal and associated infrastructure will need to build them out quickly. As a result, we can expect that demand for qualified web developers will only grow in the coming years.
