Standardizing and Digitizing Government Forms in Canada: A Digital Service Network Spotlight

Forms are a foundational tool of government to serve the public’s needs, with form design playing a critical role in how people access and experience government services.

In 2022, the Canadian Digital Service (CDS) kickstarted an effort to deliver high-quality forms by standardizing ministries’ form design and development process. This effort is named “Government of Canada (GC) Forms,” or “GC Forms.” GC Forms now offers public servants the ability to easily produce and publish secure, bilingual, and accessible digital forms.

To learn more, the Beeck Center’s Digital Service Network (DSN) spoke with GC Forms’ Senior Product Manager Stevie-Ray Talbot and Acting Head Ioana Contu.
