January 13, 2017 – Our government is committed to building a modern, secure, and reliable platform for the digital delivery of programs and services to Canadians. The Honourable Judy M. Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Minister responsible for Shared Services Canada, announced the awarding of a 10-year, $52.2M contract to Rogers Communications Canada Inc. to provide modern and reliable toll-free (1-800) network services for citizens to contact the Government of Canada.
Strong, secure and modern information technology infrastructure is the backbone of better services for Canadians. That's why the Government of Canada is committed to updating the IT Transformation Plan and modernizing the digital services it provides to Canadians through secure and reliable information technology.
SSC was created to build a modern, secure and cost-effective IT platform to support a public service that is open and networked, that takes government-wide approaches, and that leverages technology to deliver modern, reliable, cost-effective service.
