National Digital and Data Consultations
Technology has fundamentally changed the way that Canadians access information, work, shop and connect with each other. Digital innovation is essential to growing our economy, attracting investment and creating middle-class jobs.
At the same time, this digital transformation has also brought with it new challenges and uncharted territory involving how innovation impacts the future of work and Canadians' privacy when it comes to their data.
