Government of Canada

Towards a GOL vision for 2004
Using information and communication technology to
enhance Canadians’ access to
improved citizen-centred, integrated services,
anytime, anywhere and in the official language of their
choice
Core assumption:
 GOL is a service initiative: designed to improve services
 2004 is a major milestone against which departmental and
cross-government achievements will be assessed
 If done right, transformation will continue beyond 2004

GOL Guiding Principles - Benefits to Canadians
For Canadians, GoC electronic services must be:
 Accessible to all
 Of direct benefit: easy to use; organised to meet Canadians’
priorities (citizen-centric); save time/effort/cost; improve quality
and level of service; increase the range of service offerings
 Private and secure, generate trust and respond to citizen
demands
 Shaped by Canadians’ input and constant feedback

GOL Guiding Principles - Consequences for Government
To achieve benefits to citizens, the GOL initiative must be:
 Co-ordinated: to achieve progress across GoC (common
infrastructure, policies, etc.)
 Collaborative: across departments and jurisdictions, involving the
private and not-for profit sectors
 Cost neutral across service delivery channels: increase use of selfservice channels for routine transactions
 Transformative: move towards service re-engineering and
integration, over time, where it makes sense
 Innovative: use proven best-of-breed technologies and private
sector partnerships
10
Government of Canada
Gouvernement du Canada
Implementing the GOL principles
Five key components of GOL:
 on-line delivery of key client services
 shared infrastructure to support interoperability, service
integration, cross-channel integration, and reduce overall
costs
 policy frameworks and standards that promote citizen
trust, ease of use, and accessibility
 service improvement; measurement; communications;
user feedback
 HR strategy to ensure the right skills for electronic and
other service delivery

Leads) - horizontal coordination with departments
…will ensure that GOL objectives are met

(i.e. grants & contributions, change of address, etc.) and
opportunities for efficiencies
 Procurement - innovative public-private sector
