The Canada-UK Colloquium

An annual event, The Canada-UK colloquium aims to increase knowledge and educate the public about the advantages to be drawn from a close and dynamic relationship between the two countries. The event takes place alternately in each country, bringing together by invitation British and Canadian parliamentarians, public officials, academics, representatives from the private sector, graduate students and others.  Learn about the Canada-UK Council.

24-26 November 2014
Fairmont Le Château Montebello, Montebello, Québec

The 2014 Colloquium will seek to draw out both the major benefits that continue to accrue from the exploitation of cyberspace and the new twists provided to old problems and challenges.  On the positive side, the significant economic and social benefits flowing from electronic commerce, data analytics and developments such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and extended social networks.  On the negative side, the new opportunities being enthusiastically pursued by international organized crime and the impact on personal privacy in an increasingly transparent society.
