Hi Lewis, Thank you for your feedback. We have shared it with the data provider for their consideration. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
Looking for pascal Savard's phone number
My information is not correct. How do I go about getting this updated?
Hello, You can contact your department’s data administrator. You can find that person’s contact information here: http://geds20-sage20.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GEDS20/?pgid=007 Regards, Momin The Open Government team
Hi, I would like to remove my name from GEDS external directory. When someone tries my name in Google, it indicates my position, contact information and my colleagues information. Is there a way to remove from external search?
Hi there, That is a great question which we have sent over to Shared Services Canada on your behalf. Our team is responsible for hosting the datasets and records, however we are not responsible directly for the GEDS website. We will be happy to reply once Shared Services gets back to us with the correct response. Have you tried contacting the GEDS representative within your department for assistance already? http://gcdirectory-gcannuaire.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GCD/?pgid=007 You can search here by department. This may be a good option to try. Regards, Sabrina, The Open Government Team
GEDS seems no longer to provide e-mail addresses, at least for GAC; is there an alternative open source? Thanks.
Hi Randle, We don't know of any alternative to GEDS that provides e-mail addresses. Your best bet would be to use the phone number listed and call the contact. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
The link to GEDS does not work for me either nor any of my colleagues. I have tried off and on for the last year, including today.
Hello, Have you tried this link? http://geds.gc.ca/en/GEDS/ If you are a Government of Canada employee, you may be able to access the internal GEDS called GCDirectory: http://gcdirectory-gcannuaire.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GCD/?rd=1&FN=index.html Do let me know if this works for you! Thanks, Momin The Open Government team
The link to GEDS still does not work. I'm working for GoC and it's failing on me. Outlook global contact list is out of date and I'm not sure if this data and data on Outlook is related.
Hi David, Have you tried this link? http://geds.gc.ca/en/GEDS/ We don't have any problems accessing GEDS through our computers. Please let me know if this works for you. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
I have a written exam however my email crashed.
First time use it at home.
This data is definitely stale. It seems to be from late 2016. Maybe there is a scheduled task set to update, and maybe it is updating and the file is "stamped" with today's date, but the data inside originates from an old dataset. Whoever confirmed it is up-to-date did not seem to do a thorough check.
Hi Chris, Thank you for your comment. I have forwarded your inquiry to the data owner and will let you know what the current situation is in regards to the update cycle of this dataset. Regards, Momin, The Open Government team
The link, "To search for contact information, please go to Government Electronic Directory Services (GEDS)," shown as, (http://geds20-sage20.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GEDS20/?rd=1), does not work. This does not instill confidence.
Hi Richard, Thank you for your comment. The link appears to be working for us. There might have been a slight server issue at the time of your access, please try again and let me know if the problem persists. Regards, Momin, The Open Government team
This is great! Thank you for sharing! I encountered a few issues while reading the CSV data file format. It seems quiet inconsistent (ie: inconsistent column quoting - some rows are quoted, others are not; quote characters are not escaped - this creates ghost columns in some programs; empty line at end of doucment; non UTF-8/16 characters; etc.) - but opening the file in Excel and resaving as CSV fixes the formatting issues. Also, some data inconsistencies exist (ie: duplicate entries - does Stuart Campbell really have 3 jobs?; missing emails - nearly 100,000 of them; other missing data; etc.)
The data is very incomplete even for those departments that volunteered to submit information. I wonder what can be done to keep GEDS updated. Maybe allowing employees to update their own information. Or synchronizing it with the payment system, which clearly has the most up-to-date information about Govt. of Canada employees.
Hi Dan, Thank you for your feedback. I have forwarded your comment to the data owner for their consideration. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
I noticed the department is listed in column AK, just scroll right.
Would it be possible to include the government department in this file? This would be very helpful. Thanks for the follow-up.
Thanks for your comments Amanda. We have forwarded them to the dataset holder for response. Karin - the open-ouvert team
I noticed the department is listed in column AK in the Excel spreadsheet if you download it.
Can you please tell me when the current file was downloaded and how often it is updated? It says that the file is updated daily but I suspect this is not the case. Thanks in advance!
Hi Amanda, The data owner has confirmed that the file is updated daily. Regards, Momin The Open Government team
It would be great if there were a BB app for GEDS, the web version on BB10 does not work very well, if at all. Is there one? If so where can I download it since I can't find it in the BB World?
I may be missing it, but would it be possible to be able to search by location (city) in the GEDS replacement (GCDirectory).
Hi Jay, thanks for your comment. It is currently not possible to search by location, you can however conduct a search by organization. For more information see here: http://gcdirectory-gcannuaire.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GCD/?pgid=004#q4 Regards, Momin, the Open Government team.
Let me add my comments to the stream of people saying that they want the old GEDS back. I am trying to find my family member in GEDS and it is no longer there. I did try the link supplied by Momin way up at the top. No luck. Please bring back GEDS. We don't need open government. We need systems that work.
Hi Mary, GEDS has a new name and a new look. The reason for this is to allow the directory to be better integrated with a wider program called "GCTools". Despite the new look, the system remains the same. Thank you, Momin, the Open Government team.
Who stole GEDS and when can it be returned, as an easily accessible web resource?
Hi Martha, GEDS can be found here: http://geds-sage.gc.ca Thank you, Momin, the Open Government team.
I'm a bit disappointed that: A. This data is not refreshed more often, this file appears to be fairly old. (At least 6 months if not longer) B. This data is not accessible via a web service (like soap/json) I hope that this can updated.
Hi, thank you for your feedback. I have forwarded it to the data owner for their review. Momin, the Open Government team.
When is the next update for this dataset? Although the Maintenance and Update Frequency is "daily", I don't think that this is the case.
Hi Nora, you are correct. I have asked the data owners for a response to your question and to correct the frequency on the page to deter further confusion. Stay tuned! Momin, the Open Government team.
The dataset is 2 months old while the Maintenance and Update Frequency indicate 'Daily' ??
Hi Stephane, Thank you for your comment. Your concern has been forwarded to the data owner, we will update you once they return with a response. Momin, Open Government team
the link : (http://geds20-sage20.ssc-spc.gc.ca/en/GEDS20/?rd=1) at the top of the page does not work. What a pathetic site.
Hi Grant, I was able to access GEDs through the link just now. Did you click 'search/browse' under 'GC directory' on the top left hand side? I am happy to contact the data owner for you as well to relay your comment. Please note that comments are moderated according to the rules of engagement found at this address (http://open.canada.ca/en/rules-engagement). Tasha, the Open Government Team
Not all the employees are listed, and so they cannot be contacted. When doing accreditation, an open and honest organization chart has to be accessible to the public, but the Government of Canada does not do that - what does this mean? Please list ALL employees so they can be identified and accountable for the work they do and the work they do not do. I dare you to publish this.
Time to recapture "access". Difficult to find people according to job title. Time to return to "transparency and access" now that the CONservatives are gone.
Why is it governments can't keep it simple. Looking up an employee to contact should be simple. Searching in circles is a time waster. A very poorly designed system.
Are there any plans on providing internet access to your Government Electronic Directory Services (GEDS) for updating purposes to specific Crown Corporation employees?
Thanks for your question, Claude. We have shared it with the dataset holder for their response. Stay tuned! Karin open-ouvert team
Hi Claude, Since this is more of an internal GEDS related question, the dataset holder has requested that you direct your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks and hope this helps! -Tasha, the Open Government Team
