Our Philosophy

"A fundamental role of the CIO and other public service leaders in information management and technology is to harness and also drive change in a manner that better supports the business of serving Canadians. It is a role in transition where technical know-how in areas such as social, mobile and cloud must be increasingly combined with strategic, analytical and collaborative leadership skills to advance an increasingly digital government.

In this context actual and aspiring leaders need to deepen and expand their skills, capabilities and perspectives. The new uOttawa CIO Institute program is in alignment with the government of Canada direction and aspires to bring thought leaders and learners together to enable not only leadership learning but also collaborative innovation in the IT leadership environment."

- John Messina, Government of Canada CIO, Head of the IM-IT Functional Community
