Thank you for helping shape the future of open government in Canada! Public consultation on the draft commitments is now closed.

From October 2017 to April 2018 we connected with Canadians online and across the country. Our goal was to hear what Canadians wanted to see in the plan. With over 5,000 comments and with the help of civil society and Government of Canada departments, we developed a set of possible commitments.

From July 23 to August 13, 2018 we asked if you thought we got it right and gathered your thoughts on how we could strengthen the plan. Take a look at the links below to see the comments we received.

All comments on the draft plan are now being shared with Government of Canada departments and agencies that are leading on commitments. Stay tuned as we finalize and implement the plan, incorporating what we have learned from you.
