Meet local Wikipedians!

During the month of October 2018, Wikimedia Canada will host its National Contribution Month where contribution events are organised in different locations across Canada. The goal is to initiate visitors in contributing to Wikipedia or other Wikimedia projects and bring existing editors together.

Contribution days are activities where Wikimedia's contributors, students, or anybody interested in contributing to Wikimedia projects meet up to collectively improve a predetermined theme. These meetings generally take place in a library where references are easy to access, but can be organised in any public community space. We hope you will join us in bringing the Canadian Wikimedia community together!

Dates & locations[edit]

Please join us on the talk page to see if anybody else is already discussing organizing one in your region, or volunteer to organize your own event (experienced Wikipedians can help you with that).
