Workshops and events

Since launching in 2018, Civic Hall Toronto has worked with 16 local government teams, including ones at the City of Toronto and the City of Markham.

We've supported members learning about agile development, procurement innovation and open data. We've helped them connect with users, including members of Toronto's Indigenous Community.

And we've built bridges between our members and the civic tech community, enabling civic-minded tech professionals to contribute to public projects about street art, recycling and more.
