Consultation on Cyber Security

From Public Safety Canada

Current status: Closed

This consultation took place from August 16 to October 15, 2016 and supports the Government of Canada’s commitment to review measures to protect critical infrastructure and Canadians from cyber threats.


The Canadian cyber security environment is evolving. Rapid changes to digital technology can have far-reaching security, economic and social impacts. Recognizing that digital technology plays a central role in the everyday lives of Canadians, the Government of Canada asked for your views on this issue and how we can capitalize on the opportunities that come with new technologies.


This consultation provides a venue for experts, academics, business leaders, and provincial, territorial and municipal governments to impart their knowledge and insights. It also invites all citizens to get involved in a discussion about the security and economic dimensions of Canada's digital future.

What’s next?

The information gathered from this public consultation is now being compiled and a report on the findings is being developed. This data will help inform Government of Canada cyber security policy and program decisions.

More information on these findings will be made available as soon as possible. For a complete look at the content from this consultation, please visit the workbook: Security and Prosperity in the Digital Age.
