Hybrid Event | October 6, 2022 from 9:00 – 10:30 am EDT | 10:00 – 11:30 am ADT
Two ways to attend this exciting session – in-person or virtually!

TECHNATION works with CIO leaders from across Canada at all levels of the public sector.  After hosting a well-attended virtual CIO briefing session in June 2021, we are back hosting a hybrid event to profile more amazing forward-thinking leaders from the Atlantic Region to discuss critical issues and to identify digital acceleration opportunities for government services (including ongoing Covid recovery and response).

This curated dialogue will create an open and transparent value exchange between industry and government; increased awareness of current challenges and opportunities; and identify opportunities for innovative, citizen-centric digital solutions and collaboration, partnership, and co-creation.

TECHNATION will host this important briefing with a hybrid format to allow speakers to participate from throughout the region and attendees from across Canada.
