Namir Anani, President and CEO, ICTC will deliver a keynote presentation titled Digital Talent, paving the way for a greater engagement of connected citizens
Digital Talent: Road to 2020 and Beyond is Canada’s first national digital talent strategy that was developed in partnership with Microsoft Canada and has rallied the support of a wide range of stakeholders from across Canada (industry leaders, academia, and policy makers).
The strategy, released on March 9th of 2016, highlights the opportunities and challenges facing Canada’s digital economy (industry, government, and education) and society, and underscores the importance of digital talent as one of the most critical advantages for Canada in a global economy. The strategy is aimed at ensuring that Canadians are well prepared to succeed as skilled workers and entrepreneurs in this fast pace economy, as well paving the way for greater participation as consumers and citizens in an increasingly digital world.
The presentation will address among others:
- The evolving digital landscape by 2020 and beyond.
- Talent strategies for enhanced citizen engagement in an increasingly digital world.
- Canadians’ evolving expectations of government services in a hyper-connected landscape.
- The role of government in stimulating digital adoption (procurement strategies, enhanced online services, policies, others).
Introduction by Mr. Luc Lafrance, A/Chief Information Officer, Chief Information Officer Branch, who will also moderate the Q&A session following Namir’s presentation.
