The rise of misinformation and disinformation poses a significant threat to the integrity of the election process, especially with nearly 1 billion global citizens set to vote in elections this year alone. As a result, governments around the world are fighting to protect this critical element of democracy.

This globally relevant event will explore the multifaceted threats to election processes around the world, the dynamics at play between different levels of government, and how governments are actively responding to these threats.

Participants will have a chance to learn from domestic and international election experts about the evolving challenges facing democratic elections in Canada and abroad, and discover why citizen resilience is one of our strongest lines of defence.
