Digital Academy

Digital Academy

The Canada School of Public Service Digital Academy (CSPS Digital Academy) was established to help public servants gain the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed for government in the digital age. The CSPS Digital Academy supports Canada's Beyond2020 principles for an agile, inclusive and equipped workforce and advocates a digital-first approach that aligns with Canada's Digital Standards. These 10 Digital Standards form the foundation of the government's shift to becoming more agile, open and user-focused.
