Canadian Content Online - an assessment 2011

In a recent article published by the Stratford institute, I argue that in order for Canada to remain competitive in the “knowledge economy”, we must invest more heavily in creating and preserving our digital heritage resources.

Over the last 15 years, we have digitized approximately 13% of Canada’s text based documentary heritage and less than 1% of all other multi-media. While this represents significant progress, we must do better. Canada is falling behind other nations in providing access to our national heritage

While we need to ensure new creative content industries grow and thrive we must also celebrate and preserve over 400 years of Canadian creativity and make it accessible to Canadians.
