Ensuring that privacy is protected, and that data is used ethically is essential to public trust. A public service that can manage, safeguard and use data effectively is well equipped to harness opportunities to the benefit of Canadians.
With that in mind, broad federal consultations informed the design of the 2023-2026 Data Strategy for the Federal Public Service, which was carried out in close collaboration by Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, Privy Council Office and Statistics Canada.
The strategy reflects changes made since the publication of the first Data Strategy Roadmap for the Federal Public Service in 2018, and sets priorities, goals, and expectations for the strategic use of data by the federal public service to strengthen data-driven results and improve outcomes for Canadians. The strategy is organized into four mission areas:
- Proactively considering data by design in all stages of government initiatives
- Effectively stewarding data for decision-making
- Improving user experience and maintaining trust by enabling data-driven services through data that flows securely where it is needed
- Empowering the public service with the talent and tools it needs
