Hi @dianemercier, I cannot find the category for Open Knowledge Canada in this forum. I guess you should request a new local group according to the topic by @Stephen. Then, you can move this topic to the appropriate category. Welcome, anyway! :smile:


Hi @jgkim,
I followed instructions in this How to Request a new Local Group
Maybe I misunderstood.

It will be great to add the subcategorie Local Groups - Canada. Than I can invite local contributors.


Sorry, @dianemercier. I was confused because of the title of this topic. I thought this topic should have gone to the category of Open Knowledge Canada. I guess it would be better to change the title to “Request a new category for Open Knowledge Canada”.

Anyway, I’ve created a category for you, following the instructions. However, since I don’t have appropriate privilege, I could not change the ownership of the About topic. I think our staff or volunteers can help change it soon.


Conversations about Open Knowledge Canada can now be held in the Canada Local Group.
