Ontario Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs - Aboriginal Consultation Information System (ACIS)

The Canadian Supreme Court mandated governments be proactive in consulting with First Nations regarding potentially conflicting land uses. ACIS meets the communication and coordination needs for Ontario govt. legal service and policy branches.

The ACIS backbone - like many of the systems we deploy - is the Ontario GeoPortal.  The Ontario GeoPortal provides access to everything the ministry needs - providing an intuitive, secure, and functionally-rich solution. All Aboriginal consultation information - from data to documents - are managed and published this way.

Because the Ontario GeoPortal was already in place, we designed, built, and implemented this enterprise system in only a few months. Over five hundred staff across the public service use ACIS. The system has won the following awards:

  • Innovation Fund Recipient (2007/08)
  • Canadian Project Excellence Recipient (2007)
  • Public Sector Quality Fair (2006)
  • Ontario Showcase Awards (2006)
