Ontarians expect their governments and broader public sector organizations to embrace new technologies for the effective and efficient delivery of programs and services. These technologies can be implemented in a way that will increase transparency, protect personal information, strengthen security and provide benefits for individuals and society. In his first annual report since becoming Commissioner, Brian Beamish expresses his support for the adoption of new tools and offers assistance to Ontario institutions to ensure privacy protection and compliance with the law.
In Charting a Course for the Future, the Commissioner examines the use of new technologies in programs being implemented across the province, such as electronic health records and body-worn cameras. He also recognizes the enormous possibilities and benefits of Open Government.
