insights you'll receive in our series on
the data effect

■  Covid has made it clear that governments and their health and social agencies must have better and higher quality data to cope with — and rebound from — the current pandemic and future crisis. Meeting this challenge is now an imperative.

■  We'll look the data strategies and digital tools that can use our data for full public benefit, while protecting personal privacy.

■  This pandemic has put in stark relief that Canada has a dangerous “Data Deficit.”

■  While we gather data, we don’t do a very good job of sharing it to drive insight to improve safety, public policy and economic productivity. How can we solve that, now, while protecting privacy?

■  This pandemic presents an opportunity for businesses to accelerate their digital transformation. How can the government and investors help them meet that challenge?

■  And how can we make sure jobs are created for a broadly based economic recovery as we do so? 

■  We’ll look at the tools and approaches business leaders will need in the post-pandemic world to build resiliency, increase productivity and put themselves on the road to recovery.
