About a year ago, I blogged about the Working in Canada initiative as a great example of the Government of Canada doing government 2.0 — it’s a mashup that pulls together info trapped in widely spread out databases and delivers it in a way that helps prospective or new Canadians make informed decisions about where to live and work within the country.
One of the coolest things about their Facebook presence? They are interacting rather than just broadcasting. Here’s a screencap:
From what I see, the Working in Canada Facebook page is developing into a hub where people are asking questions not just about the Working in Canada tool, but wider questions about coming to Canada as well. And they are getting answers — the Working in Canada folks are pointing these people to relevant information sources, regardless of whether they specifically pertain to the Working in Canada program or not. Nice work!
