Alberta Government launches digital strategy survey

Province launches digital strategy survey

The Government of Alberta is looking for feedback from Albertans on needs and expectations for accessing online government services.

In addition to a public online survey, the government plans to reach out to technology industry leaders, post-secondary institutions, health organizations and Indigenous communities to hear their thoughts on how they can better interact with Alberta’s government departments.

The online survey will be available for Albertans to complete until Jan. 24.

“Alberta’s Digital Strategy is the next big step on the journey to becoming a leader in delivering world-class digital services to Albertans,” said Nate Glubish, Minister of Technology and Innovation.

“We are modernizing our processes, providing higher quality solutions and more intuitive, user-friendly tools that will deliver better value and outcomes for Albertans.”

According to a release, since the spring of 2019, 30 government services have moved online.

Currently, Technology and Innovation is working with other departments to bring more than 20 additional services online in the coming year.

From January to December 2021, use of government services through alberta.ca surged by more than 300 per cent, with access from a mobile device up by 500 per cent.

Recent research shows 75 per cent of Canadians indicate that government services should be available online.
