For the 18th year, VIATEC is inviting companies of all types in Greater Victoria to join forces in an effort to raise as much funds for the Mustard Seed Food Bank as possible from Nov 16th to Dec 14th! If your business is still stable and possibly even thriving despite COVID-19, this is the perfect opportunity to give back to your community... A community that needs our support more than ever.
This year we have a special goal: 100 companies, raising a total of $100,000.
Please know that you can keep this simple and don't have to take on a bunch of internal challenges or events to make a difference. Some companies benefit from team building and added warm feelings that can come from the extra organizing, but we understand you are busy. If you want to simply commit to a minimum amount so you can stay focused on your day to day, that is 100% okay with us and greatly appreciated.

The Victoria Advanced Technology Council (VIATeC) is the conduit that connects people, knowledge and resources to grow a successful technology sector in Greater Victoria.
Since VIATeC's inception way back in 1989, the Greater Victoria tech sector has grown to over 800 known technology companies, employing more than 13,000 people and generating in excess of $1.95 billion in annual revenues with an economic impact of $2.65 billion. That's bigger than the revenues generated by the entire NHL and explains why the advanced technology is Greater Victoria's #1 private industry.
VIATeC is intended to be the first place that people contact for information or assistance related to advanced technology in Greater Victoria. VIATeC's membership, which currently stands at over 350 annually elects VIATeC's Board of Directors, which in turn provides guidance to the Executive Director.
