Home to approximately 4,000 Information and Information Technology specialists who work in partnership with ministries across the Government of Ontario to develop, deploy and maintain technology solutions. Her role is to help create an inclusive and collaborate culture of continuous learning within Ontario’s community of GovTech practitioners.
