Dugald Topshee – Department of Justice Canada

Well, if nothing else, the attorneys and staff at Canada’s Department of Justice got used to virtual meetings and hearings in 2020, recalls CIO Dugald Topshee. The year began with him adding digital tools to enable Department of Justice attorneys supporting 40 federal departments to work on the go. It ended with those attorneys and […]

Samantha Liscio – Workplace Safety and Insurance Board

Just consider the sheer numbers: A coverage of 5 million people across 300,000 workplaces; 250,000-plus processed claims a year; and literal mountains of paperwork—2.3 million pieces of physical mail or faxes received in 2018 alone. At more than 100 years old, the Toronto-based Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) is one of the largest insurance […]

Justin Randall – Comwave

Oh snap! There goes that internet connection. You’re in the middle of doing the sales reports that will make your quarter, when you get the message you’re disconnected. This is getting ridiculous. Justin Randall feels your pain, and as chief innovation officer for Comwave, a Canadian telecommunications company, he’s developing the technology that lets customers […]

Steve Camacho – Toronto Catholic District School Board

Talk about an accelerated timeline. In early 2020, Steve Camacho and his team had just been approved to modernize communications and  IT at the Toronto Catholic District School Board.

Mike Melo – LifeLabs Medical Laboratory Services

Security breach. Two words that have become increasingly common in the digital world—and the last thing anyone in charge of cybersecurity wants to hear applied to their workplace. Companies and cities alike have fallen victim to the trend, and in its 2019 Cost of a Data Breach Report, IBM Security and the Ponemon Institute showed […]

Chris Foster – TC Energy

On a cold, snowy day on the Canadian plains, where a biting wind howls and the chill runs from the eyebrows to the toenails, teams of technicians work to ensure that the region’s myriad energy pipelines are properly maintained. It’s work that often sends them far afield to make sure there aren’t any issues or […]

Manik Mahajan – Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance

Some things are better done at home, although Manik Mahajan has needed to travel the world to know that’s true. Once a consultant, he helped insurance companies implement software, integrate legacy systems and IT platforms, and that took him around the globe. But the past four years, he’s been much more settled as he oversees […]

David Almond – Alberta Innovates

He’ll be among the many participants at this June’s Inventures Unbound, an annual gathering of creative minds that will be conducted virtually instead of at a convention center in Calgary.

Testimonials

Alliant is very pleased with our experience working with the TrueLine Publishing team. We were not only impressed with the caliber of the whitepaper that was produced, but with the level of attention from the team we partnered with. They were very detailed oriented and I appreciated their follow up. They even offered to refresh the article and invited Alliant to participate in some of the design features. It is without reservation that I highly recommend other businesses partnering with this publication and I look forward to an opportunity to work with them again in the future.
— Katie Patterson, Director of Marketing, Alliant Technologies
