Meet Ontario’s New CDO in Toronto!

The CDO Summit is the premier event for
digital & data leaders:

October 25, 2017   |  Toronto, CANADA
November 29, 2017  |  London, ENGLAND

We’re excited to announce that our Toronto CDO Summit will feature a keynote from Ontario’s first-ever Chief Digital Officer, Hillary Hartley. 

Hillary’s mission as CDO for Ontario’s 14 million people is to make government online services simpler, faster, and better for people and business. 

Hillary will partner with government ministries in delivering major digital projects. Ms. Hartley will also help accelerate transformation across government by setting new service standards for digital products, attracting and empowering digital talent, and aligning partners around delivering the best possible customer experience. 


According to Hillary, “Making it easier for people and business to interact and engage with their government through the power of digital technologies is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.”

As CDO, Hillary leads the Ontario Digital Service, a new organization tasked with attracting and nurturing digital talent in the Ontario government to redesign and streamline the most important government services around user needs. ODS reportedly has a budget of CA $16 million and 84 staff members.

Ms. Hartley reports to the Head of the Ontario Public Service and Ontario’s Minister Responsible for Digital Government, and serves on the province’s Digital Government Board, which advises the minister. 

We’re excited to hear her story – hope you can join us –

Collaborating on CDO Survey

CDO Club and General Assembly are collaborating with the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School on an academic research project about Chief Digital Officers.

As someone who is in this, or a similar, role, we would like to hear from you via a short survey that should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

Your responses will inform a report to be written by Professor Andrew Stephen at the University of Oxford, the lead researcher on this project. This report will come out later this year and you will have access to it.
If you are willing to complete this survey, please go to this address: or click the button below:
