Get Ready for Robotic Process Automation


Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is an emerging technology that continues to grow in popularity. It is starting to play a role in the way public servants work, but are you ready to make it work for you?

This daylong event includes a panel discussion, a workshop, and demo presentations showing various ways in which this new technology is being applied in the Government of Canada.

Join us for an opportunity to learn the basics about RPA and gain hands-on experience in applying RPA concepts to everyday business problems.
