Legislative Assembly of Ontario Website Survey

On behalf of Erica Anderson:

Hello,

I am pleased to announce a project is underway to update the Legislative Assembly of Ontario’s public website.  Part of the work includes regularly communicating proposed changes and the plans ahead to key stakeholders.

The new website will feature: 

  • A simplified design that is responsive on any device
  • New content pages and features for the general public
  • Updated services and directories

As part of our planning process we are collecting feedback on the usefulness of the current site.

If you can, please fill out a short survey now posted at the bottom of every page on www.ontla.on.ca.  All of your comments and suggestions will be considered.

I will be in touch in early 2018 with more information.  In the meantime, if you have any questions about the Assembly website or this project, please contact me.

Crown copyright e-petition update

On behalf of Amanda Wakaruk:

Thank you to everyone who supported the Crown copyright e-petition 1116, which asked the Government of Canada to make publicly available government works part of the public domain (background information available here).

The petition closed on September 23 with almost three times the number of signatories required for certification. It is also one of the few e-petitions to have signatories from all provinces and territories. The e-petition is scheduled for tabling in the House of Commons on Friday, October 20. The Government of Canada will then have 45 days to respond.

Conversations generated by this process have been inspiring. It was especially rewarding to hear directly from supporters in the private and government sectors, given that much of the evidence we were working with was based on the experiences of those in post-secondary environments.
