BTM White Paper - Get involved in shaping the BTM Profession

The BTM Forum has started the development of a white paper on the BTM profession. We invite all stakeholders to help us shape the white paper to reach a consensus on the future of their profession. We invite you to make this community more vibrant, and help train, certify, and promote the leaders of our digital transformation.

Click here to review the draft white paper on our wiki site and contribute to its development. 


For over a decade, we've worked with policy makers, industry leaders, employers, and professionals to study the Canadian labour market. Our findings have helped to inform the decisions made by governments, industry planners, educators and future and current BTM professionals.

National Occupational Standards

As part of a national focus to increase Canada's competitiveness in the global economy, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) has provided funding to ITAC to assist with the expansion of labour market information definitions through the ITAC business Technology Management (BTM) initiative by developing a prioritized list of National Occupational Standards (BTM-NOS) of Learning Outcomes and Competency Standards (LO/CSs) for BTM as a framework for professional education and career development.
