"From Cooperation to Collaboration"

Join us for Canada's premiere communications interoperability event from November 30 to December 3, 2014 in Ottawa. The Eighth Canadian Public Safety Interoperability Workshop, widely known as CITIG Eight, will again break new ground on key voice and data interoperability issues facing today's public safety sector. The focus on information exchange, topic-specific discussion and interactive break-outs aims to support and promote the transfer of best practices and experience, and the development of a more unified approach to public safety interoperability across the country, between nations and internationally.

The Workshop itself will feature hands-on sessions designed to help delegates gain an understanding of, or work toward making progress on, key issues, including:

  • National and cross-border interoperability planning
  • Provincial, regional and local interoperability strategic planning
  • Next Generation (NG) 9-1-1 and its future in Canada and beyond
  • 700 MHz Broadband for Mission Critical Public Safety Data and related spectrum management issues
  • Trends in interoperability technology, including both voice- and data-related issues
  • Situational awareness, common/user defined operating pictures, precision information environments,  GIS systems, blue force tracking and location based services
  • Social Media for Emergency Management (#SMEM)

From early adopters leading the effort to those still in discovery mode, you will be put to work! CITIG Eight is the only comprehensive, highly interactive event in Canada dedicated to addressing key voice and data interoperability issues facing today's public safety sector.
