Learning to know each other…programs in Information technique ( part 1 )

This survey will target information technicians from the province of Québec (francophones and anglophones) and francophone technicians from the rest of Canada.  So we thought it would be a good idea to look at the school programs of those concerned !  We hope it will help to make these programs more well-known, to indicate who is admissible and to help define our collective professional identity.
