The GCcollab Wiki is a public wiki hosted by the Government of Canada to facilitate collaboration and knowledge sharing.
GCcollab is a major step toward a more innovative, open, and collaborative way of identifying, exploring and co-creating the policy and research agendas. It is predicted to also contribute to a culture change as the existing public service is provided better access to emerging research, technologies, and communication approaches.
The GCcollab Wiki content is available to the public, however, users must have an account and be logged in if they wish to add or modify content. Academics, students, Canadian public servants, as well as other key communities can create an account. See the GCcollab Terms and conditions of use for more information on who can register.
Wikis are designed to be collaborative. Pages do not have “owners”, but instead, they have creators and editors. Any member of a wiki can create and edit articles. The collaborative nature of wikis creates interactive content which is constantly evolving.
The Digital Collaboration Division within the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat manages GCcollab and GCcollab Wiki, but does not moderate individual pages.
