Canada Gazette team wins the Client Service Award

June 26, 2018

Good day,

The Department of Public Services and Procurement awarded the Client Service Award to the Canada Gazette team for service excellence.

The Canada Gazette team received this recognition thanks to outstanding results obtained in a client satisfaction survey conducted in December 2017 by the independent firm Léger Marketing. In fact, 100% of clients said they were satisfied with the services provided by the Canada Gazette staff, and 95% were very satisfied, as the following data eloquently indicates.

  • The staff is professional: 100%
  • The staff is competent: 100%
  • The services are provided within a reasonable period of time: 100%
  • The staff is friendly and courteous: 100%
  • Clients have confidence in the quality of the services provided by the staff: 97%
  • The staff shows interest and is willing to help clients: 100%
  • The staff is easily accessible: 100%
  • The staff is knowledgeable: 97%
  • The staff takes the necessary time to meet client needs: 97%

This is very remarkable, especially since the Canada Gazette team deals with a very diverse clientele from the public and private sectors.

Users of the Canada Gazette website itself also expressed great satisfaction. In fact, 81% of visitors said they were generally satisfied with the website. Visitors also reported that the website and its features meet 75% of their needs, while clients reported that 94% of their needs are met.

I invite you to consult the client satisfaction survey on the Library and Archives Canada website.

I congratulate all members of the Canada Gazette team for these wonderful accomplishments.
