Co-hosting Montreal's first IATI event

We're happy to be co-hosting Montreal's first IATI event this Friday. Michael Roberts (of Groupsia) is responsible for the idea, but we're thrilled to help get this ball rolling.

Join us for our premier meetup event in Montreal on Open Data for International Development with our friends at Station C. in Montreal. The event is co-spondored by Groupsia, Ajah, and Open North with a special thanks to Station-C for providing us with the space for this event.

Joni Hillman from Development Initiatives in the UK joins us to talk about the International Aid Transparency Initiative (IATI) as well as the upcoming international IATI meeting to be held in Montreal.

In addition, Yohanna Loucheur from Canada's Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD) will discuss Aid Transparency in Canada.

We'll have some snacks and beverages for you during the event. This is an informal gathering and networking event, and presentations will be kept short to allow for lots of questions and networking.
