Our Summits introduce practitioners, champions and entrants to professional development in data for the public good. Our overarching aim for this Summit is to empower practitioners and advocates at every stage of their journey from the start, with generally-applicable Open Data professional development content and activities that stimulate capacity-building, innovation and progress regardless of participants’ subject areas. This year’s Summit features the following focus areas:

Data-Driven Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development

We see tremendous and highly inclusive opportunities in the leveraging of data and especially Open Data by entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Data can hone any business, and can be used to advantage regardless of location.

Indigenous Data Sovereignty

As Canada, First Nations, Métis & Inuit pursue reconciliation, the principled approach of First Peoples’ Ownership, Control, Access & Possession (OCAP) of their data is key. This must be understood not only in theoretical, but also practical terms, as data governance strategies are developed.

Open Data on the Front Lines of Climate Change

The increasingly noticeable effects of anthropogenic climate change are manifest most of all across the North. Open Data is a key stratagem for all research and response activities in this space, and it must be propagated and leveraged among all participants.
