About UnTapped

Tapping into new talent pools is a top priority for BC businesses, with our province poised to be among Canada’s leaders in economic growth in the coming decade. Baby boomers are retiring, fewer young people are entering the workforce, and yet our demand for more skilled workers across all industry sectors and professions continues to grow.

Each year, UnTapped brings together hundreds of BC employers for topical discussions of common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions, led by forerunners in their fields.

The 2018 UnTapped Series has received a tremendous amount of support from sponsors, speakers, and partners in communities across BC.

“The demand for qualified, motivated employees around the world greatly exceeds supply. One of the reasons is that employers have traditionally over-looked workers that do not fit easily into one-size-fits-all mold.” Randy Lewis

former Senior Vice President, Walgreens

Elements of UnTapped 


UnTapped facilitates numerous events throughout the year from a Gala, to power breakfasts, to workshops all of which looks at how to access untapped and skilled candidate pools that have not traditionally been targeted. Join us for topical discussions of common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions, led by forerunners in their fields.


Attended by over 450 delegates including government stakeholders, and employers both big and small, UnTapped is an unparalleled opportunity to learn and discuss uncommon recruitment and engagement strategies with leaders both in and out of your sector at a variety of events including our working breakfasts and UnTapped Awards Gala.


UnTapped kicks off this year’s program with the UnTapped Awards Gala.  A night where we celebrate those champions who have worked hard to create a more diverse and inclusive workplace.  Join us for dinner, drinks, entertainment and more as we kick off another thought-provoking UnTapped program.

Join 400+ local business leaders to discuss common recruitment challenges and uncommon solutions that work.
