The Canadian Internet Governance Forum (CIGF) is Canada’s leading multi-stakeholder forum for digital policy dialogue.

What we do

Since 2019, CIGF has convened hundreds of representatives from government, civil society, the private sector, academia and the technical community to tackle the most pressing public policy issues facing the internet. Whether internet fragmentation, data governance or content moderation, we provide the opportunity for all members of the Canadian internet community to discuss problems and find common solutions to the most pressing issues in domestic and international digital policy.  

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.
