Digital transformation is quickly becoming the largest driver of new solutions and technology investments among Calgary businesses. It’s projected that Calgary’s creative industries sector will spend $1 billion on digital transformation from 2019 to 2022, and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), AI systems and machine learning have been identified as key engines of growth.

There are over 60 companies working on video games and/or immersive media products and services. A 2019 Nordicity survey found that over 200 people were working in the video games and immersive media industry in Calgary – with 70 per cent of companies looking to hire roughly five people over the next year. The Calgary Game Developer’s Assocation (CGDA) boasts a headcount of over 850 members, the majority of which are ready to work talent.

Calgary Success Stories

Building global solutions and partnerships, right here in Calgary.

ZeroKey 

"Alberta is surprisingly strong in AR/VR technology. It would seem like a strange sector to come out of oil and gas country, but as it turns out the type of architectural and industrial challenges that AR/VR is great at solving are also common in the oil and gas industry. Many Alberta AR/VR companies have built great industrial solutions that are now being broadly applied to AR/VR as a whole.

In Calgary, where ZeroKey is headquartered, we have a very strong and world-renowned academic community in the field of geomatics, which includes technologies related to positioning like GPS. This expertise is the whole reason ZeroKey exists today; without that background in positioning technologies we could have never developed the technology that we have."
