Side events

There will be lots of opportunities to participate in Canada’s OGP Summit.

Side events include meetings, workshops and networking sessions about specific open government topics or with subsets of the global open government community.

We hope that there will be lots of exciting events during the week of the Summit in Ottawa.  We’re still planning many of the events, but here are a few examples of events that we expect to see:

  1. Civil Society Day
  2. Government Points of Contact Day
  3. Academic Day
  4. Parliamentary Day
  5. Youth Day
  6. Tech for Good Tradeshow
  7. Indigenous Gathering
  8. Feminist Open Government Day

Want to get involved?

In the spirit of open government, we would welcome opportunities to work with partners to help organize side events.  Do you have an idea or want to get involved?  Contact us at
