TechNet Canada Community Resources

Welcome to your online resource for learning how to join a user group in your community, local events and more. User groups are typically independently run, volunteer groups that meet on a regular basis to discuss and share information on a variety of technical topics. Participation in a user group is an excellent, inexpensive way to receive technical content, education and to meet with your peers to get more out of the Microsoft platforms, products, technologies, and resources which you are interested in.

User Group Support Services

  • Are you passionate about technology and want to start up your own local User Group Technical Community? Find out how UGSS can help support you and your group.

Benefits of Joining a User Group

  • Connect with your peers on a global scale, sharing insights, tips, tricks and techniques.
  • Attend local events to hear technical experts and user group leaders speak, network in person with your peers, and share your experiences.
  • Learn more about your field through seminars, online chats, newsletters, and other information-sharing.
  • Take your career to the next level by staying informed of the issues and in tune with the challenges developers face every day.
