Skeena Knowledge Trust Recognized with Rising Star Award

The Skeena Knowledge Trust was recognized for its achievements in data accessibility, innovation, democracy, impact, and data quality at the Canadian Open Data Summit with the Canadian Open Data Rising Star Award in November 2018. The awards selection jury wished to applaud and encourage the Skeena Knowledge Trust as a model for other community organizations in how they can leverage open data to meet a challenge across jurisdictions using governance based on trust.

The team at Eclipse travelled to Niagara Falls, Ontario to accept the award on behalf of the Skeena Knowledge Trust and to give a presentation on the Skeena Knowledge Trust within the context of community data portals with co-presenter Dr. Victoria Fast from the University of Calgary.
