Digital Strategies for Government and Public Sector

Government & Public Sector Website Key Features

Improving public sector digital experiences

Federal, state, provincial and municipal governments are grappling with the demands of today's digital world. Citizens expect rapid delivery of services and the ability to manage their information online. The private sector has set a high bar for customer service and user experience

At all government levels open source technology has become the gold standard

Individuals have high expectations for digital experience, and governments are no exception. To exceed the expectations of citizens, the public sector has to be at the forefront of the digital landscape. Federal, state, provincial and municipal governments are grappling with the demands of today's digital world. Citizens expect rapid delivery of services and the ability to manage their information online.

Deliver valuable content with the best experience possible

We work with government agencies at all levels to tackle increasingly complex issues. Leveraging open source technology we help government agencies address challenges like ensuring regulatory compliance, accessibility and data privacy, accelerating and disseminating communications with citizens on important issues, creating efficient workflows and reducing the cost of technology ownership. We use our expertise to create breathtaking, seamless user experiences that surpass that of the private sector.


Address the growing complexity of security and mitigate risks to your organization. Free up people and resources and focus on things that matter to you regarding process improvement and innovation.


Position your organization for the future by responding to new challenges and opportunities without scaling costs. Build continual process improvements that are agile that can be tested, refined or retired as it brings value.


Transform yourself to become a community and information hub on a base to brand build and become top of mind to members and stakeholders, helping you to become a relevant part of their lives.

New government sites anywhere in the world would also benefit, as we have from OPIN’s extensive government experience and ability to leverage Drupal’s extensive network worldwide and their own set of strategic partners.”

Creating empowering digital experiences

Office of the Prime Minister of Canada

The Privy Council Office, which was acting on behalf of the Prime Minister’s Office, required a website redesign that would captivate a very discerning audience and provide them with the information necessary to bolster a country. Our creative director worked tirelessly with the Prime Minister’s creative team to develop the new designs, which would later be recognized by the International Summit Creative Awards as the Best Government Web Design of 2014 and by Acquia as the 2015 Partner site of the year.

Citizen-Centric Design

The criteria for the project centred around laying down a solid foundation for a scalable solution on a single, stable platform that can be used for future years of development and expansion. The technology needed to transform and streamline the Government’s online business processes, integrate with external assets and software systems, and “make a splash” while reaffirming the public’s faith in technology and how they would use it.

Drupal is the open-source alternative for municipalities, state/provincial or federal governments looking to extend their reach, engage their audience and inspire their citizens. 

Drupal is an enterprise-ready, open-source content management system that powers some of the world’s largest and most popular websites. Business and technology leaders use Drupal to create real-world enterprise solutions that empower web innovation. When assessing Drupal, it’s essential to envision your goals and ask, “Can Drupal be used to build this?” The answer is always “Yes!” 

By choosing Drupal for your new website, you will be in good company with the City of Boston, the City of Ottawa, the City of Los Angeles, the City of Austin, the City of Louisville, the City of Tampa, Shared Services Canada, Industry Canada, Natural Resources Canada, Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada, and many more.
