Transforming (Digital) Government in Ontario - Some Early Thoughts on the Simpler, Faster, Better Services Act

With their budget bill, the Government of Ontario has announced what are potentially very significant changes to the management and governance of digital and data in the province (and with that, very significant changes to basically everything the Government of Ontario does). I wrote three blog posts with some early thoughts on these proposed policy and management changes.

The first post explains why we should be paying close, critical attention to these policy changes given their potential significance for service delivery, governance and democratic accountability in the province.

The second post explains why these management reforms are being introduced through legislation specifically (primarily through the proposed Simpler, Faster, Better Services Act).

The third post looks at dilemmas of democratic accountability that might accompany these policy changes.
