Empowering citizens through Internet education (Canada)


Ambassadeur provides citizen education and training in the use of information technology to obtain government information and services. The project aims to empower citizens and create relationships within the community at both local and regional levels. It is carried out as a partnership among the Jonquière Office of Human Resources Development Canada and the six Community Development Assistance Corporations in the Saguenay/St-Jean Lake region. Taking advantage of Internet Community Access Centres as forums for discussion and business opportunities, the project promotes the use of information technology to access the resources, products, and services of the Government of Canada and other providers.
