SYNOPSIS: The 2018 BI in Canada conference will be the first of its kind within Canada and showcases Canada’s amazing accomplishments and successes in the application of behavioural science to public policy challenges.

With the participation of experts, academics as well as policy-makers from all three orders of government, the 2018 BI in Canada conference aims to build capacity and share knowledge on approaches to behavioural insights within a public policy context, and to explore how academic researchers and the public service can work together to deliver innovative and effective solutions that can have meaningful impact across Canada.

If you are a public servant of any Canadian government attending this conference (Federal, Provincial/Territorial, or Municipal) please identify yourself when registering for your ticket(s), there is extra programming on March 2nd specifically for public servants that may be of interest to you. This extra programming will run from approximately 8:30 AM to 12:00 PM, with breakfast and two capacity-building workshops included. No additional cost for this second day will be charged to participants, but space is limited. More details will be shared with registered public servants as they become available.
