The Open Government Tracker provides quarterly updates on the Government of Canada's progress on our open government commitments. We hope this tool will make it easier to stay in-the-know, find opportunities to participate, and ask questions about the work we're doing to make government more open and transparent.

The tracker was developed in addition to the yearly self-assessment reports that we provide to the Open Government Partnership (OGP).

Get involved! Have a look on the challenges page to find out how.
