Le projet Building Canada 2020 et la page wiki créée pour le projet ne sont pas à l'initiative de la communauté OSM du Canada.  À mon avis, les initiateurs de ce projet doivent indiquer clairement qui est responsable de ce projet et qu'il n'est pas endossé par la communauté OSM du Canada. 
Nous avons plutôt un rôle de sous-traitants,  simplement informés et invités à y participer. Je ne sais pas si des partenaires externes oseraient démarrer ainsi un projet en France ou en Allemagne.
Ce n'est pas à mon avis de cette façon que nous allons développer des communautés OSM.

 Hi everyone,
I am currently working at Mapbox on the Data Team and previously worked at StatCan on the Crowdsourcing project. Mapbox is collaborating with StatCan to engage Canadian universities to participate in the Building Canada 2020 project by hosting mapathons during OSMGeoWeek (November 12-18, 2017).
We want to make sure we are accomplishing this in a way that encourages new Canadian mappers, while also ensuring participants are being educated properly about OSM and the community.
The plan is to help educate Canadian universities about organizing mapathons through documentations like teachOSM as well as to set up clear tasks for students to complete during the mapathons. We have started outlining the information on this wiki page.
On the Canada OSM Tasking Manager there are already some tasks related to the Building Canada 2020 project. My plan is to add additional tasks for students to complete. The tasks will clearly outline what the students should map and where they should map. 
I would like to know if you have any suggestions on cities/towns/communities in Canada to focus on, particularly rural regions that are not mapped and have high resolution imagery.
Regards,Julia
