The Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) is pleased to welcome Susan Aaronson, a CIGI senior fellow and expert in international trade and digital trade to the Rideau Club for a special look at data governance and its future in policymaking. Susan will propose a new system for data governance, where data regulation is based on its type. She will examine where Canada stands on the global scale in terms of comparative data advantage, what a shift in governance would mean and what policies should be put in place to better regulate international data flow.
