This petition campaign was created by Tech Reset Canada, the Digital Justice Lab, and the Centre for Digital Rights. It seeks to highlight the urgent need to have a national conversation about digital rights. While there are many organizations that we work alongside already doing work on this issue, there are many more individuals and communities that we hope to bring into the conversation through this campaign, together.

We support investments to increase tech capacity and expertise within the public sector, and we take part in policy discussions about balancing the benefits of fast-moving innovation opportunities with delivering long-term benefits to all residents. Bianca Wylie, Saadia Muzaffar, Jennifer Evans, and April Dunford are the co-founders of Tech Reset Canada.
