Event description


150 Innovative Minds. 6 Civic Challenges. 1 Day of Impact.

Civic Tech Toronto is hosting our third annual hackathon in partnership with the Toronto Public Library on Open Data Day (March 3rd, 2018).

As design and technology continue to transform our workplace and what it means to be a citizen – this year we challenge you to redefine The Future of Work. Join round-table discussions with domain experts and hack on civic tech challenges in collaboration with talented and passionate individuals across various backgrounds and expertise.

We welcome all members of the public: coders, designers, policymakers, government staff, students, and creative minds who share an interest in making Toronto more responsive, prosperous, sustainable and equitable, through tech and design. Anyone is welcome to sign up – coders are welcome, but you don't have to be a coder to contribute!
