The consultation period is closed, but we want this to be an ongoing dialogue. Please contact us at any time.
On this page you can comment on or vote for suggestions, or you can suggest a new idea. The ideas and discussion you contribute will help us to develop the draft commitments for Canada’s next Action Plan on Open Government.
Open government ideas can span a wide range of activities and it is helpful to think in terms of themes. The themes described below have been identified from previous consultations and reflect international trends in open government.
Make government information open by default.
Social and Economic Development
Champion open government principles and initiatives at home and abroad to support inclusive social and economic progress.
Innovation and Prosperity
Ensure easy and consistent access to the government data and information to facilitate value-added analysis and drive socio-economic benefits through reuse.
Make financial information more readily available and easier to track, allowing Canadians to have a full accounting of how their tax dollars are being spent.
Provide Canadians with the information they need to fully participate in the democratic process, and the opportunity to make their voices heard on government policy and programs.
