The international Open Government Partnership (OGP) announced that the second global Open Government Week will take place March 11-17, 2019. This year, the Open Government community will focus on increasing the number and diversity of partners taking part in events and conversations. We ask you to invite at least one new partner to join you in making your Open Government Week plans. From women’s rights association, to local businesses to youth centers, people from all walks of life and across gender, race, religion and geography are all invited to take part in Open Government Week and to help make governments work better for everyone.

This is your chance to get involved and represent Canada by hosting an event: townhalls, speaker series, hackathons, webinars, open dataset releases, or anything else that connects people to civic life. Please ensure to submit your event on our website so we may add it to the event calendar.

You'll find everything you need within this toolkit to help you promote your event, including templates for emails and e-vites, graphics, and suggested social media posts. Additional resources are also available on the OGP's Open Government Week website. For questions, or additional support, please contact us at OGweek-semaineGO@tbs-sct.gc.ca.

We also thank you for sharing our messages for #OpenGovWeek and #OpenGovCan. Your support in spreading the word about Canada's role in this global call to action will continue to make our government more open, inclusive, and accountable.
