Welcome to the May issue of CanadianCIO.
This month we’ve organized this special hub to showcase our stories about how government at all three levels – federal, provincial, and municipal are digitally transforming to deliver services to citizens in the 21st century. We traveled to the Prairies and to the West Coast to find the best examples of public sector CIOs implementing the innovative technologies you can’t stop hearing about. Use this as your jumping off point to discover the stories below.
