The Government of Canada should develop a fund that will provide grants to enable groups to take existing and new data sources and make them available to the public in a way that is promotes broad citizen interaction with data. This fund will help to support organizations in their efforts to create interactive data platforms and translate data into information. This initiative is particularly important to data that is of less relevance or interest to the private sector. It is an important initiative to ensure that data reaches the target audiences, including remote, marginalized and less data literate populations.
