Description

The two biggest levers for improving people's lives at scale are technology and government.

Code for Canada brings them together.

Join us for the 2018 Code for Canada Showcase, a demonstration of what's possible when technology and government work together, and a celebration of the Canadian civic tech ecosystem.

The theme of the showcase is “delivering civic tech in Canada.” How can we work across sectors to build digital products and services that positively impact residents?

You'll hear from speakers—including Code for Canada fellows and their government hosts, public sector innovators, civic entrepreneurs and grassroots civic tech organizerswho are using technology and design for the common good. And you'll learn how Canadians can work together to build tech capacity in the civic sector and civic capacity in the tech sector.
