Toward a Canadian Digital Information Strategy

Digital information has become central to nearly everything Canadians do in their day-to-day lives, from communicating with one another, to engaging in commercial or government transactions, to learning from a documentary heritage that is increasingly electronic in form. At the same time, digital information is fluid, fragile, and too often, fleeting. A portion of our digital heritage has already been lost and much remains at risk of being lost.

To address the challenges posed by digital information, other countries and jurisdictions have been investing substantially in their digital information environments. In addition to efforts in preservation of digital assets, many international initiatives also aim to provide open and equitable access to digitized and born digital materials.
