At the recent Canada 3.0 conference, the federal government launched their consultation process to develop a Digital Economy Strategy for Canada. As promised in the 2010 budget, the federal government is seeking to develop a strategy that will "enable the ICT Sector to create new products and services, accelerate the adoption of digital technologies and contribute to improved cyber security practices by industries and consumers".
As the voice of BC’s technology industry, the BCTIA is developing a formal submission on the topic and they want your input.
In preparation for the consultations, the federal government has drafted a discussion paper that is split into 5 sections; each section asking very pointed discussion questions. The BCTIA submission will focus on two key sections: Growing the information and communication technology industry, and building digital skills for tomorrow.
