CSV files are ok, but really meant more for spreadsheets than databases. Is there any way you could post XML ?

Hi Randy, Thank you for your feedback. We have shared it with the data provider for their consideration. Regards, Sabrina The Open Government team

This is a malformed csv. There are multiple occurrences of unescaped double quotes, which make it impossible to use effectively.

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
