Event description
On Wed. June 23 at 12pm ET / 9am PT join our Overcoming Digital Divides Workshop about youth and digital skills development.

About this event

Young people grew up with digital technologies and have relatively greater internet adoption. Especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for reliable internet access increased as schools transitioned online. Despite living parts of their personal and professional lives online, there remain disparities between access to devices and internet connectivity among Canadian youth, especially among low-income communities.

How can Canada improve access to the internet and digital learning devices among youth coming out of the pandemic? How can digital spaces better aid youth learning and development? What digital skills are necessary to maximize benefit from e-learning opportunities?

Join us on Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at 12pm ET /9am PT we’ll discuss how Canada can better support digital skills development and access in Canada.
