Government agencies across Canada are under intense pressure to do more with less. Increasing expectations of accountability and service reliability must be balanced against the overarching need to reduce budgets and address changing citizen demographics.

Now is the time to invest in GIS, a sophisticated mapping technology that has helped many organizations overcome operational challenges and drive improved performance. It leverages all of the geographically-referenced data that exists in your operational systems -- such as demographics, public safety and public works programs, land and development data as well as citizen engagement records -- to uncover what might not otherwise be visible or understood in a multipage report or complex spreadsheet.

ArcGIS is a robust platform that allows you to manage, analyze and display your data so that you can make the best, most informed decisions.  It gives everyone in your organization the ability to discover, use, make and share information and maps from any device, anywhere, anytime.

Canada is a leader in open government and we will stay there by continually seeking to improve. Bringing together this group of experts will provide us with another important channel of consultation on the path to the development and implementation of Canada's Open Government Action Plan.
