Open COVID-19 Data: engaging Canadians on their data needs


Open COVID-19 Data: engaging Canadians on their data needs

What is the role of data in the response and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic? What datasets, data use cases, and data sharing practices should be promoted in the areas of disease spread, government actions, and community impact to scale our collective action?

In collaboration with the Standards Council of Canada, we invite practitioners, researchers, activists, and experts, all who are interested in health and open data, to join this important conversation with:

  • Mr. Anil Arora, Chief Statistician of Canada
  • Ms. Bonnie Healy, Health Director at Blackfoot Confederacy
  • Mr. Éric Martel, Head of the Performance, Analysis, and Evaluation Branch at the Integrated University Center for Health and Social Services (CIUSSS), Montreal
  • Dr. Erin Strumpf, McGill University Professor and Canada Research Chair in health economics, studying healthcare service delivery and inequalities in health outcomes.
  • Mr. Mark Leggott, Executive Director, Research Data Canada
