Ontario’s Change Mission in a Digital Age

In today’s world, people expect government services to be as simple, seamless and intuitive as streaming a show on Netflix, shopping on Amazon or booking a vacation through Expedia. To meet public expectations, innovative public sector organizations are applying user-centred methodologies and modern technologies to radically transform the design and delivery of services. Ontario has become a North American leader in the global movement to improve the online experience for people and business.  In an up-close fireside chat, Ontario’s first Chief Digital Officer, Hillary Hartley, will speak to the ethos behind the organizational transformation underway in the provincial government, and how the Ontario Digital Service plans to collaborate with both internal and external partners to advance the mission of making government simpler, faster and better.
