Tasks are being handled online more than ever from managing benefits, finding child care, or renewing your driver's license. 

In an attempt to keep current and in pace with digital solutions, the Government of Alberta is developing a digital strategy to modernize its services. 

The strategy is starting by asking Albertans to share their ideas, needs, and expectations for accessing online government services through an online survey.

Alberta Minister of Technology and Innovation, Nate Glubish says, "In addition to the public online survey, Alberta’s government will reach out to technology industry leaders, post-secondary institutions, health organizations, and Indigenous communities to hear their thoughts on how they can better interact with Alberta’s government departments. Insights gathered will help shape Alberta’s Digital Strategy."

To date, there are currently 30 government services that have moved online, and Technology and Innovation are working with other departments to bring an additional 20 more in 2023. 

The usage numbers from January 2021 to December 2021 indicate that Albertans using government online services increased by more than 300 per cent. People accessing services through mobile devices increased by 500 per cent. 

The online survey will be available for Albertans to complete until January 24, 2023.
