Information Technology - a key to the digital economy - a key to a more prosperous and successful Canada!


The federal government, led by Industry Canada's Minister Clement and Minister Finley (Human Resources and Skills Canada) and Minister Moore (Canadian Heritage and Official Languages), has recently released a consultation paper Improving Canada's Digital Advantage.  The government is seeking input from Canadians on how Canada can improve its position in the digital economy.  Specifically, they are inviting comments in the following five areas:
