Open Cities Index Virtual Round Table Series

The Open Cities Index Virtual Round Table Series brings together Canada's municipal open data leaders and innovators for quarterly discussions of open data challenges, solutions, and best practices. In advance of each session, PSD will publish a report focusing on an issue related to the advancement of municipal open data initiatives. Round Table participants will have the opportunity to discuss the report, how the findings and recommendations apply to their respective initiatives, and what further research would benefit their work.
