Join us on Tuesday, April 9 in Ottawa or online for a conversation about how technology, and digital technology in particular, can improve urban transportation for the people who need it most. Panellists Shauna Brail (Institute for Management & Innovation, University of Toronto Mississauga), Jean-Sébastien Langelier (Infrastructure Canada) and Catherine McKenney (CitySHAPES) will discuss the policies needed to realize the benefits of “the new mobility era” in a way that is equitable, efficient and effective. 

The panel, moderated by the IRPP’s vice-president of research, Rachel Samson, will be a hybrid event that will take place in person at the Delta Ottawa City Centre hotel and online via Zoom. Participation is free, though space is limited and registration is required. A light lunch will follow the panel discussion. 

The event is the second in a three-part IRPP lecture and research publication series, Imagining a Better Digital Future for Canada, sponsored by TELUS.  A supporting policy paper by Ata Khan (Carleton University) and Ren Thomas (Dalhousie University) will be published in advance of the event.
