About the Event

Join the PPF Academy’s roundtable on digital innovation during COVID-19 examining two government initiatives from two jurisdictions. Both cases highlight the rapid development of digital tools to serve citizens better during the crisis.

Faced with a global pandemic, governments in Canada and around the world have had to respond to COVID-19 in real-time, testing the resiliency of our governments and public institutions. As the transition out of the initial crisis begins, there is an unprecedented opportunity for learning and improvement around the crisis response of government departments and programs. This webinar will kick off the Public Policy Forum’s new Public Service Innovation and Leadership During COVID-19 project which aims to find, capture and recognize the outstanding and ground-breaking work being done by the public services across Canada through a series of case studies. By highlighting two cases of digital innovation (PHAC’s email notification system and B.C.’s long term care staffing tool) that put citizens at the centre of the policy design through digital innovation, we can start to capture lessons for public services across the country and for a post-pandemic future.
