Cross-Canada Engagement Report
We want your feedback
In the lead up to the launch of CDS, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat held a number of engagement sessions across Canada to begin the conversation on a Canadian approach to digital government. The Engagement Report details the feedback received from the various groups and communities across Canada.
Your feedback on the report is important to us as we embark on our ambitious mandate and continue the conversation with stakeholders across the country. Send us an email or comment directly on the website.

Learn more by reading our blog
We are committed to working in the open to help keep Canadians and stakeholders informed about what we are working on and how we are working, and to share lessons learned and best practices. Our blog, which features posts from CDS team members and guest bloggers, is one of the many ways in which we will do this. Blogs to date have focused on our mission, putting users first, the mindset in which we work, the raison d’être of CDS, and most recently, how we will work with departments to identify and select projects to work on together.
