Blueprint 2020 National Student Paper Competition Seminar

Regulating the Sharing Economy

Join us for a presentation by the Grand Prize Winner of the Blueprint 2020 National Student Paper Competition on the sharing economy and its impact on federal policy.

The sharing economy is a vibrant, expanding and lucrative collection of markets that is changing the way Canadians interact with each other and purchase goods and services. Examples like Uber, Airbnb and Kickstarter are household names around the world.

Grand Prize Winner Salman Dostmohammad will present the paper he co-authored with Jude Long, "Regulating the Sharing Economy: Applying the Process for Creative Destruction". The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Salman and representatives from the University of Ottawa and the Privy Council Office.

For additional background on the discussion topic, read the Central Innovation Hub's paper "Back to the Future: The Sharing Economy.
