Imagining Canada’s Future: Insights from Carleton University

The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative is looking at areas that will impact Canadians in the next 5, 10 and 20 years. Four regional events will be presented in the Province of Ontario under the umbrella of Research Impact and, in addition to Carleton University, will be held at Wilfrid Laurier University, University of Guelph, and York University. Each event will address the question:

“What knowledge do we need to thrive in an interconnected landscape and how can emerging technology help leverage that goal and its benefits?”
