Who we are

The Canadian Internet Governance Forum (CIGF) is Canada’s leading multi-stakeholder forum on digital and internet policy issues.

In 2019 and 2020, our events brought together hundreds of representatives from government, civil society, and the private sector to tackle pressing public policy issues facing the internet. These issues include cybersecurity, data governance, content moderation, the ethics of AI, and more.

The CIGF is a national initiative of the global United-Nations-convened Internet Governance Forum, which holds annual meetings at different locations around the world. The CIGF produces a report each year detailing the unique, regional priorities facing Canadian stakeholders in attendance. This report is fed into the global IGF to provide a Canadian perspective.
