Accelerating digital transformation
The Code for Canada Fellowship is an experiential learning program for government teams that helps to build digital capacity and kickstart culture change across the organization. As part of the 16-month program, Code for Canada places digital professionals inside government, where they use their skills to help public sector teams to harness design and technology to address challenges. Using 21st century digital skills and methods like user-centered design and iterative development, fellows spend nine months collaborating with government staff to create a digital product that improves the delivery of a government service or function.
The Code for Canada fellowship program is transformational. While the output of the program is typically a digital product, the process acts as a vehicle for driving cultural and structural change inside of government — encouraging innovation, improving tolerance for risk, and increasing the capacity for transparency and engagement.
What the fellowship can do for your team

Accelerate the development of your organization’s digital capacity
A pilot to transform the way your organization works and serves its stakeholders
Digital transformation can be extremely complex and risky. The fellowship acts as a pilot for digital transformation — it allows your team to work with fellows to show what’s possible when you apply modern digital techniques to public sector problems while also experimenting with new skills and team make-ups before committing to organizational-wide initiatives.
