Industry Minister's Message
In today's world, there is no question that digital technologies and tools have vastly improved our quality of life. In every field of human achievement—from medicine to education and from space exploration to telecommunications—digital innovations and inventions are helping Canadians live better, more productive, healthier lives.
That's why our government created Digital Canada 150 (DC150)—a comprehensive plan to provide all Canadians with the digital skills and the tools required for the future.
Since we launched DC150, our government has brought in measures to promote a vibrant and competitive telecommunications industry. We have taken steps to connect and protect Canadians online. We are providing Canadian businesses with opportunities in the global digital economy. We are leading on digital government. And we have been preserving and sharing Canadian content online.
As we approach Canada's 150th birthday in 2017, our government remains committed to creating jobs and economic growth by providing Canadian businesses and communities with the skills and opportunities they need to succeed. In today's digital world, we know that Canada's long-term success and prosperity depends on it.
With this in mind, I am pleased to present Digital Canada 150, version 2.0, which builds on the successes of DC150.
