Hi Carole, Thanks for your message! The User Expos officially kicked off at 90 Elgin on January 14 and will run until February 11! These Expos are taking place in federal offices in the National Capital Region and in cities across Canada. No registration is required as the goal of the event is to engage with public servants in the public lobbies. For tomorrow’s event at Place du Portage, the NextGen Team will be set up in Phase Three, Tower A/B, Event Space Four. We hope to see you and your colleagues there to engage with us. While only 14 Expos have been planned at this time, the NextGen team is always welcoming feedback through our website and looking at other ways to engage public servants on an ongoing basis throughout this process. Amanda Senior Advisor, NextGen
