Prime Minister's Message
Prime Minister of Canada
Recent years have offered us a glimpse into the incredible power of digital technologies to improve the quality of our lives, the productivity of our businesses and the strength of our economy.
But it is only a glimpse. For those countries that understand the potential of these technologies—and position themselves to capture it—the benefits will be transformational.
That's why we are presenting Digital Canada 150—a bold plan to guide Canada's digital future. It sets out a vision of what Canada can achieve by the time we celebrate our 150th anniversary, in 2017, and beyond.
It is designed to be flexible and open, adjusting to changing times and responsive to new developments. It is also designed to ensure that Canadians not only benefit from the digital revolution but also are among its leaders.
Canada is a major world economy because we are open and free. We already lead in fields such as trade, science, innovation and culture. We are now ready to take our place as the most technologically advanced nation on the planet.
I invite you to join us in making Canada a truly digital country.
