Panel:

How Investing in Canada's Hardware Will Drive Economic Recovery

Join these three panelists for a discussion about how hardware and semiconductors will play a crucial role in Canada’s economic recovery and sustainability. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted Canada’s major gaps and challenges, but with challenges always comes opportunity, particularly in our domestic supply chain. Hardware is often overlooked, but is critical in the development and commercialization of high-tech innovations.

Panel:

Canada's Lifeline: The Intersection of Health and Hardware

Tune in on this discussion as three knowledgeable panelists explore how healthcare technologies and solutions will play a crucial role in Canada’s economic recovery and sustainability. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted Canada’s major gaps and challenges, particularly in the way we can use technology in our healthcare sector. We have witnessed the removal of regulatory barriers, changes to reimbursement and public investment in funding healthcare technologies which have enabled companies to quickly pivot to addressing needs in the healthcare sector. What lessons does this provide us with, and what does it mean for the future of healthcare technology?

Panel:

Rebuilding a More Equitable Country: Lessons from Lockdown

Participate in this panel discussion where three inclusivity and diversity experts explore what solutions and frameworks will contribute to a more equitable technology sector, and the role that allies will play in elevating underrepresented individuals in technology. If Canada wants to reach its potential, these underrepresented groups need to be at the core of driving change.
