The Digital Collaboration Division


This project cannot be done alone, therefore we have developed a partnership model to make it easy for groups to quickly join and become part of this initiative. Specifically, we are looking to develop a first cohort of partners for 2018-2019 to help with the first stage of development for the Open and Accessible Digital Workspace.

Our partnerships serve as a chance for groups to work with others to meet common needs while also piloting experiments in new ways of building/obtaining digital technology to support public good. We work with our partners to model new ways to fill needs inside and outside the Government of Canada. This creates road-maps others can follow to help scale new ways of working and developing. Our services are open source, free to use and designed explicitly for public good.
