I-CAN Work is an initiative of the Western Cape Government's Digital Economy Unit that aims to empower people with the training, knowledge and tools they need to find and create work for themselves with a particular focus on how the use of digital technologies can help in doing so.
 
 
Digital technologies have significantly changed the world, including the labour market and have introduced new ways of searching for work, new ways of creating work for yourself, new ways of carrying out your work and new ways of improving your knowledge, skillset and education to better enable you to do so. I-CAN Work aims to enable you to know how to use these new ways of doing things to your benefit.
