WHY disGOVR CANADA? Realizing the Potential for GovTech in Canada

The Government of Canada is one of the biggest buyers of goods and services in the country, purchasing over $20 billion worth each year. With 13 additional provinces and territories and 3 major municipalities with populations over a million, the public sector in Canada can be quite fruitful for those companies able to get a foothold in this market.

GovTech is defined as the technology infrastructure that government departments use to do their internal work or deliver services to citizens. Canada is quickly becoming a hub for tech companies – and governments are increasingly looking to procure innovative technologies.
