Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON — This week, Kaleed Rasheed, Ontario’s Minister of Public and Business Service Delivery, hosted ministers and deputy ministers from across Canada for the 3rd Federal, Provincial, and Territorial (FPT) Symposium on Digital Trust and Cybersecurity.
Increasing people’s confidence and participation in our ever-evolving digital world was the central theme of the symposium. Jurisdictions showcased their work to build innovative digital solutions and highlighted new possibilities to streamline and improve public service delivery.
“Working together is the best way to reassure Canadians that their governments are taking the lead in protecting their personal information as they navigate the digital world,” said Minister Rasheed. “This symposium is a clear signal to our people, businesses, and institutions that Canada is positioned to continue growing as a global leader in the digital space, and it was my pleasure to host my federal, provincial, and territorial colleagues so that we can continue building the best outcomes for all.”
The Ontario symposium was a follow-up from the second ministerial gathering in Vancouver, British Columbia in January 2023. The first symposium on digital trust and cybersecurity was hosted in Quebec in June 2022.
Ministers agreed to continue collaborating on emerging issues like AI, cybersecurity, digital trust and more. Discussions also focused on taking a united, careful, and measured approach to unlocking the benefits of advanced technology.
