The CARL Open Education Working Group invites you to the fifth call in this series of informal gatherings for individuals involved in open education (OE) in Canada (faculty, instructors, librarians, students, instructional designers, etc.). 

This month, we are bringing the Canadian open education community together for an OE Cross Country Check-In (inspired by the calls BCcampus and eCampusOntario have organized in recent years).

This event will feature a series of mini-updates (2-3 min. per speaker!) on policy or funding news, achievements, and emerging efforts since what was reported in CARL’s Open Education Working Group’s Environmental Scan of Open Education Service and Support in Canada in 2020. As always, our notetakers extraordinaire will capture essential details in our running notes document. If you would like to present a mini-update on behalf of your institution, organization, or region, please email Lise Brin at CARL (

Calls in this series take place on the third Wednesday of most months.  While this month’s discussion will be primarily in English, bilingual moderators will be on hand to help ensure participants are able to contribute in the official language of their choice. 

Settle in with your beverage of choice and prepare for some coast-to-coast sharing and networking.If you can’t attend this meeting but would like to know about future OE CCCC events (and receive other Canadian OE news), please email Lauri Aesoph ( and ask to be added to the CanadaOER listserv.
