Take Action: Demand support for a "May to Must" cloud computing policy for Canada
Canada has the opportunity to establish itself as a world leader in the adoption, use, and delivery of cloud services to all Canadians.
The "May to Must" campaign demands that the Canadian government adopt mandatory cloud computing policies similar to Australia's progressive cloud model. Adopting the requirement that cloud solutions must be evaluated before considering other options for the delivery of shared government services would modernize government service delivery and stimulate economic growth in Canada's IT sector.

According to CATA CEO, John Reid, "Improved adoption of cloud services by the government sends an important signal to the private sector. If government agencies were perceived to be treating cloud services as risky, this could reduce the adoption in the economy more generally."
In order to help advance the campaign CATAAlliance and CanadaOne are deploying an on-line letter writing tool that enables interested parties to raise and support issues of concern with their Members of Parliament.
Please help us send a strong message to all MPs that the government should be considering cloud solutions first and investing in public cloud services by sending them a message.
