As stated in the 2018 Report to the Clerk of the Privy Council: A Data Strategy Roadmap for the Federal Public Service, "by increasing their capacity to create, manage and use data, many government departments and agencies are making better decisions and, ultimately, better serving Canadians." However, since its publication, the context, priorities and maturity of the federal data landscape have evolved considerably, and work remains underway to integrate these changes.
This event serves to highlight the priorities and actions to be included in a renewed data strategy co-led by the Privy Council Office, Statistics Canada and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. Invited guests will share the latest developments on what has changed since 2018 and how the Government of Canada must continue to drive innovation, prepare for the future of work, and ensure that Canadians have trust and confidence in how their data is used.
Participants will have opportunities to ask questions and will leave with a better understanding of the government's renewed data strategy.
