About the Event
More than ever, Canadians are looking to governments to 'move the needle' on pressing challenges. Despite significant investments, progress is limited. Better use of data and evidence can change this.
Blueprint and the Institute of Fiscal Studies and Democracy are partnering to host the Better Evidence Conference. In this full-day event, we'll explore how data and evidence can be used to grapple with our toughest, most complex challenges—the rising cost of living, housing affordability, climate change, mental health and opioid crises among them.
The conference will examine the state of data and evidence in Canada: where Canada is already a leader, where it is falling short and how to address its vulnerabilities. Importantly, it will delve into how we can all work together to drive toward evidence-informed decision-making that delivers better outcomes for Canadians.
Join us in Ottawa on February 5th, 2024, with leading experts, senior practitioners and government leaders to shape the future of data-driven and evidence-informed decision-making in Canada.
Through an engaging agenda of panel discussions, interviews and keynote speakers, this conference will:
- Map the state of data and evidence in Canadian government decision-making and highlight emerging trends from Canada and abroad;
- Highlight the roles of leadership, culture, and systems in overcoming barriers to use data and evidence; and
- Identify actionable strategies for Canadian governments to strengthen evidence-informed decision-making.
To encourage an open and frank exchange of ideas as possible during the conference, the Chatham House Rule will be observed. This means that participants may share information gathered from the conference, but not attribute the sources.
