Data is shaping society and directly impacts modern day approaches to healthcare, education, business and communications.  “We live in a world where everyone and everything is interconnected; data is becoming more important to how we solve life’s most complex problems. A national Digital Charter will set Canadian business and citizen’s up for success – while simultaneously addressing the overarching concern for data privacy and sovereignty,” said Angela Mondou, ITAC president and CEO.

Today’s announcement comes after numerous industry-government consultations designed to create a new, made-in-Canada approaches to data. ITAC, along with its members and the wider information, communications and technology (ICT) industry,  has long encouraged the development of a strategy that maximizes the value of data for organizations;  supports innovation; fosters collaboration; and provides straightforward direction on transparency and accountability for organizations that own, develop, collect, use and share data.

“Recent federal investments in artificial intelligence (AI), quantum computing and fifth generation (5G) are good examples of planning ahead for a data-driven digital economy,” adds Mondou. “Strengthening industries thriving on data helps improve talent retention and build deeper public-private partnerships. Canada has a unique opportunity to become a global leader on this global issue. By creating a value-based national framework that clearly communicates how Canadian businesses and citizens collect, use, disclose and share data actively, there is no limit to what we can achieve as a country.”
