Pablo Listingart

Executive Director, ComIT

Pablo Listingart is the Founder and Executive Director at ComIT, a Canadian charity that helps people to overcome employment barriers. Since 2016, ComIT has been working with those less fortunate and highly talented, who are in need of a low-cost training strategy, to help them take an active role in the local workforce.

ComIT has expanded its program nation-wide, helping over 600 people per year, offering them full access to a tailored IT education so they can take their rightful role in the Canadian economy.

Nominated CBC Manitoba Future 40 in 2020, Pablo was featured by the Federal Government of Canada on their #ImmigrationMatters campaign where his story and work was shared to portray the importance of immigrants in the future of the country.

In 2021, ComIT launched along with Google Canada and the support of organizations such as Indspire, Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and many others, its Recoding Futures program for Indigenous learners, reaching people across the country with an interest in pursuing a career in IT, where over 1000 people already participated in the trainings, from coast to coast to coast.

Raised in Buenos Aires, Pablo is the youngest child of a low-mid class family and has called Canada home for over 8 years. He holds a Masters degree in Computer Science and an MBA, and has worked in the past for IT corporations such as Microsoft and IBM.
