Would you like to help shape the future of the internet?

The Canadian National Dialogue invites you to this event. You can share your views by participating in it.

“We, the Internet” brings together 100 Canadians from different backgrounds to find answers to fundamental questions in digital life. People from different parts of Canada will come together on October 23-24 for the event, held virtually.

What does the internet mean to you? Worried about who owns your digital data? Want to make a difference in reducing the impact of fake news and cyberbullying? The Canadian Dialogue is part of the Global Dialogue on the Future of the Internet, taking place in more than 70 countries worldwide. The dialogue results will be shared with Canadian and international policymakers who make decisions that affect your digital life.

Join us to share your views on the internet! This is not an expert dialogue. Instead, we are looking for participants from all over Canada who represent the country’s mosaic’s great diversity. Space is limited, so sign up today! It’s your chance to participate in decision-making processes that will shape your digital life.

“We, the Internet” will bring together some 100 Canadians from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds to share their views on key questions that shape our digital lives.

The discussions will take place over four online sessions where participants will learn and share their views:

Session 1. The Internet and Me – What do we use the internet for? What do we love about it? What do we hate or fear about it? What would we like to change? (October 23, 11:00-13:00 EST)

Session 2. My Digital Data – What trails of our personal data do we leave in cyberspace? Who can see and use my data? Who should own or benefit from my data? What can I do to better control my exposure online? (October 23, 15:00-17:00 EST)

Session 3. The Digital Public Sphere – How has the internet changed our access to information? What about misinformation and disinformation? How can it be challenged, countered, or controlled? Should there be limits on what we are allowed to say online? (October 24, 11:00-13:00 EST)

Session 4. Artificial Intelligence – What is it? Why does it matter? What is AI, and how is it changing our lives? What is AI improving? What is AI threatening? What/who controls and shapes AI? What are some of the ethical dilemmas? (October 24, 15:00-17:00 EST)
