On October 2, 2007, Industry Canada hosted a "Canada Roundtable on the Future of the Internet Economy" to coincide with other events during "OECD Week in Ottawa". The purpose of the Roundtable was to get input from Canadian representatives from business, government, academia and consumer groups on Canada's priorities and positions on the issues that will be addressed at the Organisation for the Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Ministerial Conference on the Future of the Internet Economy in Seoul, Korea, in June 2008.
To prepare participants for the Roundtable, three discussion papers were circulated to participants in advance of the event.
Fuelling Creativity: Innovation, Participation and Entrepreneurship
Don MacLean, Associate, International Institute for Sustainable Development
Building Confidence: Security, Privacy and User Empowerment
Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in Internet and E-commerce Law, University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law
Benefiting from Convergence: Access, Mobility and Ubiquity

The Roundtable discussion was highly participative, informative and timely. It was chaired by David Johnston, President of the University of Waterloo and attended by some 70 high-level representatives.
