    it is now about a digital society
    This is transformative technology.
    It is not some passing fad.
    And, we are still in early days.
    The issues can no longer be left to technological experts and specialists:
    digital now underlies how we create, communicate and store information in all media

  • 17. 2010 Consensus
    widely shared perception that Canada is falling behind globally
    To succeed, an unprecedented level of collaboration is essential across all sectors of society
    The focus has shifted from the digital tool makers to the digital tool users.
    The emerging foundation of the digital era is not digital media (the technology) but rather connectivity (the social and cultural outcome of the new technology).

    rise to the challenges of a fast-changing, intense global environment.
    Canada does not have the luxury of time
    in developing comprehensive, collaborative and integrated approaches to education and training, business development, infrastructure provision and policy-making.
