GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION PROGRAM - VOTE 2102

The Geographic Information program provides leadership in the development and application of information management and information technology to contribute to sustainable development of Ontario’s natural resources. The program is responsible for the creation, maintenance and provision of access to geographic information about provincial lands, waters, other natural resources and for the provision of services relating to information for the provincial government and works with other Ministries, Agencies and public sector to achieve program objectives. As a leading participant in the Land and Resource Information and Information Technology (I&IT) Cluster, the Ministry collaborates with other Cluster Ministries to implement coordinated and efficient delivery of I&IT services and programs across these Ministries.

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
