Event description


Tech- Day on Parliament Hill - Hosted by: North of 41.org

Version Francaise: https://frtechday2017.eventbrite.ca

This is the 3rd Annual Tech Day on Parliament Hill hosted by North of 41.org. This event is designed to connect tech CEOs with the policy decision-makers on Parliament Hill. Staffers, MPPs, Senators and other stakeholders can meet and learn about the issues that those in the tech sector currently encounter.

By being a part of Tech Day on Parliament Hill, your company has the unique opportunity to participate in and contribute towards the growth of this innovative event. Traditionally, there has been a large disconnect between the tech industry and law makers. Both groups have significant impact but their lines of communication are rarely open. Tech Day will bridge that gap and facilitate both groups to educate each other about issues that affect each group regularly.
