Position Overview

Binder Browser – an electronic meeting management application that enables the elimination of the large paper binders that are often used to support meetings and their agendas. Binder Browser has also been adopted as the standard tool for Cabinet and Treasury Board meetings. This solution also successfully supported the Ontario-Québec Joint Meeting of Premiers.

Since September 2016, the use of the Binder Browser application has resulted in the reduction of paper consumption of approximately 5.5 million sheets of paper and a savings of $220,000.

Prior to Binder Browser, Cabinet and Treasury Board meetings required 6-8 administrative staff to assemble paper binders for each meeting and with Binder Browser this number has reduced to only 2-3 staff. Extrapolating this data across most meetings will result in significant time savings and enable staff to focus on more strategic activities.

Currently, 80 committees (e.g., Cabinet Committees, Legislation / Regulation Committee, Deputy Ministers Council (DMC), etc.) use Binder Browser, and we are recommending establishing this as the standard for electronic meeting management tool.
