Thank you to everyone who participated in the first Code for Canada Summit!
At the 2020 Code for Canada Summit, we showed what’s possible.
Civic tech and digital government leaders from across Canada came together at our first annual Summit. We left buzzwords behind, and focused on real examples of change, success and learning. We’re grateful to the public servants, entrepreneurs, advocates and tech creators who added their voice to a vital conversation about how technology and design can serve the common good.

Code for Canada’s fellowship program embeds technology and professionals inside government, where they bring the tools and processes of digital to bear on important public sector challenges. This year’s fellows took to the stage at the Summit to share the new and improved services they built in collaboration with their government partners.
Fellows at the Canada Energy Regulator helped make data about energy projects more accessible, so that scientists, landowners, Indigenous communities and others can participate more fully in the energy dialogue.
“Think like a system and act like an entrepreneur.”
“We envision that every First Nation will achieve data sovereignty in alignment to their distinct worldview.”
“Moving at the speed of trust is moving slow.”
“We need to bring people back to the promise of government and the fundamentally positive role it can play.”
