As we head into a crucial federal election, how can we work together to stop the spread of misinformation?
We want to better understand how to spot misinformation online and work to prevent its corrosive impact on democracy.
On September 12, 2019, Canada 2020 invites you to a free public event to discuss the spread and impact of misinformation, and the challenges facing Canadians as we head towards the 2019 election.
