Feedback and recommendations were received with respect to best practices in the specific areas of communications, the relevance of data sets, and the introduction of emerging technologies. The results of the review are used in planning service delivery and program improvement. Read the Final Report - Client & Stakeholder Engagement - NS Base Mapping.
