Google Cloud Awarded Framework Agreement for Secure Cloud Services by Canadian Federal Government

Google Cloud can now serve even more of Canada’s government services and citizens, helping to make government systems more secure, agile, and cost-effective.

Ottawa, Canada, October 22, 2020 – Google Cloud announced today that it has secured a Framework Agreement for Secure Cloud from the Canadian federal government. This agreement now enables Google Cloud to directly sell innovative cloud platform and collaboration technologies to federal agencies, helping them digitally transform and better serve their communities and constituents.

To secure this framework, Google Cloud was assessed by the Canadian federal government against all relevant security, privacy, and usability standards. While Google Cloud already works with several Canadian federal government agencies, the new agreement will permit Google Cloud to better support a wide range of federal departments, agencies, and crown corporations.

“Receiving a framework agreement for secure cloud services means we can now support programs that require high levels of data protection for government workloads,” said Mike Daniels, Vice President Global Public Sector, Google Cloud. “This new agreement reflects our continued investment and support for customers in the Canadian public sector, including the announcement of our second data center region in Toronto. It is another example of momentum we’re seeing as government agencies move to the cloud.”

Citizens have become accustomed to convenient, easy-to-use, digital services in their daily lives. Government organizations face increased pressure to deliver the same convenience as consumer experiences, often under financial constraints and using legacy systems. This new framework agreement with Google Cloud will enable governments to procure cloud services—and subsequently help close the gap between government and consumer services.
