E-Brief from Canada

Wood, Alexandra, International Trade Forum

Tips on Canada's e-strategy, services and partnerships, presented during ITC's e-mail discussions on export development in the digital economy.

Commitment to e-government

Canada's federal government is committed to achieving fully enabled electronic service delivery by 2004. For more information of this initiative you may wish to explore:

http://canada.gc.ca/main_e.html This is Canada's online government site, containing information for Canadian citizens and businesses (e.g. on health, consumer affairs, taxes, etc), as well as for non-Canadians visiting, studying or doing business in Canada.

http://www.ged-gol.gc.ca/index_e.asp This subsite, "Serving Canadians in a digital world", contains a wealth of information on Canada's strategy to achieve integrated electronic service delivery across different sectors and "jurisdictions".

Canada's e-commerce strategy

In 1998, Canada's Department of Industry established an Electronic Commerce Task Force in order to forge partnerships and address the horizontal issues created by e-commerce. See the following web site:

http://ecom.ic.gc.ca/english/ 60.html Electronic Com-merce in Canada. This site contains information on public-private sector initiatives in e-commerce, including Canada's Electronic Commerce Strategy. It also includes up-to-date information on key issues such as the development of a government-wide public key infrastructure to enable secure electronic commerce within government and with external clients.


Canada's trade promotion organization, the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service, is continuously improving its web site in order to provide easy access to its services through its network of trade representatives abroad.
