The Trudeau government is making another move towards equipping Canada – to deal with the rapidly advancing era of big data.

The office of Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains has sent invitations to a launch – described as consultations on national digital and data content.

Business leaders and academics have been urging Ottawa to create a national strategy – to harness the expanding power of the data-driven economy – from accessing the economic gains to be had – to developing tools to protect privacy.

The federal invitation says – the transformative power of artificial intelligence and big data will generate new opportunities for job creation and economic growth – but the government acknowledges the explosion of data generation – is also raising new questions around privacy and security.
