Ontario's Data Strategy

Ontario’s Data Strategy will explore new opportunities for data use across Ontario and protect people’s data rights from growing risks.By sharing your views, you can help us develop a strategy that reflects your needs and concerns – whether you are a parent concerned about how your child’s data is used, a business owner trying to safely and responsibly implement a data-driven business model or a resident concerned about how data-driven changes are affecting your community. You can learn more about this work at ontario.ca/datastrategy.
