When you think about working in technology for the Government of Canada, what comes to mind?

Dusty server rooms?

Flip-flop programmers?

That’s not actually the case. Well, not completely the case.

We work on some pretty amazing things, like…

Inserting Canadian values into our use of Artificial Intelligence.

Unlocking the potential of Open Data.

Managing Canada’s largest technology operation.

Enabling secure access to online services through trusted digital identities.

Developing the Government’s first digital policy.

Developing the Government of Canada’s first voice activated service.

Prototyping secure data exchange platforms.

Developing innovative and citizen-centric approaches to service delivery.

Making it easier for Canadians to request government information.

Creating new ways to hire differently for today’s gig economy.

Listening and working with diverse stakeholders to build consensus.

And building a common digital blueprint, for the Government, so we can act as one.

By the way, did you know?

This humble server actually runs…

Our borders.

Our immigration.

Our national tax system.

#GCDigital. It’s way more than a back office function.

Digital, it’s now everything we do!
