Disinformation: Challenges and Dangers to Democracy

Professional Development Institute’s Information Integrity Lab,

In partnership with the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) Canada

Online Event | June 22, 2022

Canada’s resilience to disinformation has been tested these past years with concerted campaigns from foreign adversaries and a thriving domestic disinformation ecosystem – not to mention the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. These dynamics were fully on display with the contentious February Freedom Convoy protests against vaccine mandates in Ottawa and other major Canadian cities. Speakers will discuss the challenges and dangers to Canadian democracy posed by disinformation.
