Government of Canada Symposium: Achieving Excellence in Information Management
A message from the IM Champions for the Government of Canada
As the IM Champions for the Government of Canada, we would like to thank you for taking the time to participate in this first government Symposium on Information Management. Information is a valuable asset that must be managed. As a key government IM stakeholder, you play an important role in making the most of Canada's information assets.
Today, government leaders in Canada and the United States will share with you the progress that is being made to address our IM challenges. You will hear real examples of how IM is a key enabler to achieving government priorities as well as the risks we face if IM issues are not addressed. We will also be recognizing those departments that are "Leading by Example" in IM, by implementing new IM initiatives and sharing the results with their colleagues in other government departments.
To help you in your efforts to improve IM, we have put together this information folder. In it you will find the following useful documents about the latest thinking on IM and the tools and training available.
We hope that you will find this information beneficial in your efforts to improve the IM practices in your organization. As your IM Champions, we and the lead agencies will be following up, through the government's IM governance bodies, to obtain your feedback on the symposium and your recommended next steps. Key documents and results from the symposium will be posted on the Library and Archives Web site. Please direct any comments you may have resulting from the symposium to the Government Information Management Office, Library and Archives Canada by telephone: 819-934-7519, Fax: 819-934-7534, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will consider this event a success, if when you leave here today:
