Project Description

Policymakers rely on a range of briefing materials to prepare for meetings or events. Prominent among those materials is the bio document, which relays a significant amount of information about a counterpart, and allows policymakers to build rapport with foreign officials. Last year our VSFS team built a database of over 300 political leaders in Canada. This year, we're looking to maintain and expand that, to include provincial and private sector leaders.
