Bits and Ballots: Trust, safety and democracy in the digital age

Join us for a symposium in Toronto focused on protecting the internet and maintaining electoral integrity with leading experts from government, industry and community.

As Canadians gear up to head to the polls later this fall, the symposium will feature a fireside chat centered around trust, safety and elections with Google’s VP of Trust and Safety, Kristie Canegallo. The discussion will be moderated by Brian Gallant, Special Advisor to the President of Ryerson University and former Premier of New Brunswick.

Following the fireside chat, the afternoon will feature a variety of panel discussions. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from industry experts on a topic that has never been more relevant.
