Welcome to ITAC Online, our renamed and re-imaged monthly online newsletter. Because ITAC is essentially a community of smart companies and smart individuals who have passionate views about what it takes to make our industry and economy strong, we want to use this newsletter to share those views. We have also designed the newsletter to engage more interactively with all our readers. You can do so in two ways: first by commenting on anything that you read here and second by making use of this publication to express your own views about the issues and priorities of the ICT sector. There is a link after every featured story giving you an opportunity to send us your thoughts. If you are interested in making a larger contribution, please contact Jason Grosse (jgrosse@itac.ca).
I hope you enjoy this new approach.

Best regards,
