Digital Fellows

The Canada School of Public Service's Digital Fellowship aims to bring together a multi-disciplinary community of leaders to help develop and steer the Digital Academy's learning programs. This will help ensure the academy's work meets the government's needs, and showcases the Government of Canada's most forward-looking projects and organizations.

Digital Fellows and the academy’s learners will be at the forefront of the public service’s adaptation to continuous disruption; in how we understand citizens’ needs and meet their rising expectations for service and engagement.

Fellows within the Government of Canada will be joined by colleagues representing the multi-disciplinary digital community from across Canadian sectors.

Digital Fellows will:

  • bring their leadership in priority fields to the School and to their colleagues across government
  • help define how the Government of Canada approaches digital transformation
  • guide the curriculum for each specialist stream (Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, DevOps, Design, and Disruptive Technology)
