The Digital Collaboration Division at the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat is working on the next generation of tools that will enable digital collaboration in the Government of Canada. Formally know as the GCtools team, we've been looking at options for migrating off our current platform used for GCconnex and GCcollab and adopting more agile and open development practices to build and support an open and accessible digital workspace.

Sébastien will tell the story of how the GCtools started, how they impacted collaboration in the Government of Canada and where they are going. He will talk about OSS we are using right now and others we are looking at. He will also showcase our own OSS projects that are open to contributions.
