Description

TECH DAY AT QUEEN'S PARK - November 13, 2017


Tech Day at Queen’s Park is an exciting event organized by North of 41 that demonstrates the power and passion of the tech industry’s grassroots network to lawmakers and staffers. Attendees will represent various areas of tech from across Ontario.

The purpose of this event is to raise awareness amongst MPPs and Staffers about the issues that tech entrepreneurs and tech CEOs encounter on a regular basis.

By being part of Tech Day at Queen’s Park, your company has the unique opportunity to contribute towards the awareness and understanding of matters you face that are important to business growth and job creation.

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 the way this day can enable. Tech Day will bridge that gap and facilitate both groups to educate each other about issues that affect each group regularly.

Themes for 2017 Tech Day at Queen’s Park:

  1. Tech Jobs Agenda (Skills Development and Training)

  2. Cyber Security (Protection and Privacy)

  3. Growing Tech Sectors in the Digital Economy (Blockchain, Fintech, AI, Citizen Engagement, Digital Gov, etc.)








This is the 2nd Annual Tech Day at Queen’s Park. The day will include one on one meetings with MPPs, Staffers and other stakeholders from the Ontario tech community. There will be roundtable discussions as part of the program. Tech Day at Queen’s Park will conclude with a reception and tech demos. As part of Tech Day North of 41 will be releasing its “Innovation in Ontario” discussion paper.
