The Leadership Council for Digital Infrastructure is seeking your input. The Council has launched an online ‘crowdsourcing’ campaign to get fresh ideas on how to build a world-leading digital infrastructure (DI) ecosystem for Canada. Ideas can be provided in the “Have Your Say” link on the Council's new website (

WHY SHOULD YOU PARTICIPATE? Researchers in all sectors, academic administrators, project managers in government and academe, students, policy makers and anyone else who stands to use and benefit from an advanced DI ecosystem in Canada.

All of the ideas generated will help inform the Leadership Council as it works to develop a draft roadmap and policy framework for a world-leading DI ecosystem, scheduled to be presented at the upcoming Digital Infrastructure Summit on January 28 and 29, 2014.

Visit and submit your ideas before January 19, 2014.
