Media Advisory - CivicAction and LinkedIn Release Brand New Insights on the Toronto Region's Tech Skills

TORONTO, Oct. 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Join CivicAction and LinkedIn, along with John Tory, Mayor of Toronto, to mark the end of the City's Workforce Development Month with the release of new, real-time data on the Toronto region's tech sector.

LinkedIn - a global company with over 380 million members - has chosen the Toronto region for this pioneering research that looks at how LinkedIn data can help us understand tech skills in our region. With 1 in 3 people in the Greater Toronto Area on LinkedIn, that's a huge pool of data that has never been tapped until now.

Come hear about this frontier research, the power of big data, and what partners are already doing in response to maintain our region's competitive edge.
