Improving Government On-Line

I am part of a research team studying the access of Canadians to government web sites. We are interested in the prerequisites for people to communicate with government over the Internet, whether in order to retrieve information, make use of services, or participate democratically. Our final report to policy makers will make recommendations about how they might improve access to and the quality of government online in Canada.

Part of our research involves investigating the experiences and opinions of Canadians with regard to their use of government web sites. We have set up a Web survey to this end. The more respondents who complete the survey, the better our study can reflect the needs and wants of Canadians – so if you fit the profile (you live in Canada or represent a Canadian non-governmental organization), I urge you to take a look at the survey. You may help improve the state of Canadian government online.
