Panel Organized by: Simon Fraser University

Exchanging data and knowledge between government and non-government organizations has huge potential value. But hard conversations around data security, trust, privacy, and measuring the value derived from the exchange are greatly needed.

How do federal departments navigate the complex issues around data sharing in order to maximize the social and economic benefits? What strategies work to create conditions for such partnerships to succeed?

This panel will discuss how Simon Fraser University brings together government, industry and communities to share and mobilize data responsibly to address the country’s most pressing social issues, and help position Canada as an innovation leader.
