Note from the editor

The Ontario Digital blog collects the thoughts, ideas, work, and discussions around digital government in Ontario. The blog will be updated weekly and will feature updates from the Digital Government team and from members of the community working on digital government, open government, civic technology, and other related topics. (The views expressed reflect those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official views of the Government of Ontario.) The Digital Government team is committed to accessibility. While the Medium platform is not, at this time, standards-compliant, we continue to advocate for more accessibility features; as per the Ontario Public Service Accessible Customer Service policy, we are happy to send plain-text, accessible versions of all pieces of content posted on this blog upon request.
