As governments tap into the digital age, data is becoming a critical asset to inform decision-making, drive innovation, and deliver better—and more contemporary—public services.

This seventh event in the Contemporary Issues in Canadian Federalism Series will explore the digital policy strategy needed to navigate this new context, how different levels of government can collaborate and learn from each other, and the benefits and challenges of the federal structure as Canada continues its transition towards a digital and open government.

Participants will take away a better understanding of the importance of a pan-Canadian approach to the coordination of digital services, along with insights into intergovernmental collaboration, standards and regulations, data stewardship, security and privacy.
