This paper is a brief research report on the development of the CompéTICA partnership network whose goal is to develop a lifelong continuum of digital competences in the Atlantic Canada, to describe, initiate and implement practices in respect of challenges related to adaptability and transferability, as well as building of digitally inclusive ecosystems. As result of the ongoing reflective work on social, economic and educational issues, as well as research gaps identified in the literature, a potential of holistic and systemic approaches will be discussed. Further, we describe initial steps and future challenges in building sustainable collaborations with partners from multiple sectors, social groups, and organizations.
