Digital technology is changing how we engage with one another

To connect, create, learn, pay, and play, we increasingly rely on smartphones, tablets, social media, and cloud computing.

We also produce more data and, through analytics, can form insights.

These shifts change your expectations of how the City delivers service to you and communicates with you.

We're helping bridge the digital divide

The Digital Strategy acts on these shifts to benefit people who live, work, and play in Vancouver – no matter their income level.

Low-income households are less likely to have home internet access, according to Statistics Canada's Canadian Internet Use Survey.

Our work with Vancouver Public Library has a special focus on making sure all can join and participate in the digital world.
