Statistics Canada is holding a series of digital conferences, titled Canada 4.0 - society, the economy and the digital transformation. The first of these conferences is:
The digital revolution and its impact on our society and economy
When: Tuesday, June 18, 2019 from 1p.m. to 2p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, followed by a 30-minute question and answer discussion.
Description: Digitalization knows no boundaries. Canada’s digital economy, or the economic activities related to the billions of online transactions that occur every day, is growing faster than the rest of the economy and is bigger than some of this country’s largest industries.
While data continues to drive our world, there is still much more to learn about Canada’s digital transformation and its impact on our society and economy. As a result, Statistics Canada is going beyond traditional social and economic measures to capture Canada’s full economic portrait.
Join us on June 18, 2019, for a digitally-delivered panel discussion with a series of experts, who will shed light on the types of information needed to navigate this digital era and how, together, we can leverage the economic and social opportunities it presents.
