We need all government areas to be accountable to the public. Too many offices and not enough listening to people's concerns. Government seems to believe they get a free ride on tax payers money. Cut backs need to be made, less paying themselves first and more looking out for the people.

Governments have lost all common sense, we are experiencing this first hand in dealing with a environment issue. We have been treated very poorly, when if common sense prevailed the situation could have been corrected.

Government has lost all respect for the people and this country is beginning to show the affects.

What ever happened to honesty and dedication, instead of this multiple greedy attitude.

It is important in the world of government programs to have accountable program managers who understand the outcomes they are trying to achieve and the performance measures necessary to effectively evaluate program performance.

This is not the situation and too often the performance measures are ‘whatever makes the Minister look good’. Program evaluation needs to be a strong foundation for democratic societies.

I would like to see a working group discuss developing this senior executive capacity and instantiating a more coherent governance model that brings out the best in politicians, senior bureaucrats, and builds a motivated, innovative work force.

163   Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Addressing disincentives to open information

Many of the issues with the ATI process that are mentioned in the media can be explained in whole or in part by the incentives that the current ATIP process and system creates for public servants. No matter how fervent a believer in open government, receiving an ATI request is a painful experience. The amount of labour involved in understanding and clarifying the request, searching records and reviewing the resulting records for release is impossible to overstate. The real effort costs are usually many times higher even than the official reporting forms, at least in my experience, because no one is willing to acknowledge the true time and effort requirements to sort through the equivalent of many thousands of pages of potential documents for each request. Given this process, it's no wonder that records are not kept or not thoroughly searched since this could easily result in no time remaining for any other work.

For any future ATI system to succeed will need buy-in from those implementing the system and that will require the development of a dramatically less labour-intensive process. Are there ways to automate processes? Can employee involvement be limited to review?

Given the dramatically declining cost of computer storage, would it be possible for all email records to be automatically copied without human intervention to a giant database. Any incoming ATI request would be treated by the ATI office as a keyword search similar to google. These requests would automatically search all electronic resources (email, GCdocs, public websites, shared network drives) and manual searches of paper records would only be done when explicitly requested, thus removing the need for the requester to understand government filing systems. This kind of automation would reduce search time and time interpreting requests to zero. It would eliminate the risk of some people doing more or less thorough searches than others. I don't think it would be possible to eliminate the review process, but it should be made possible for this system to identify the originator of a given record and automatically send them the documents to review and to mark up any areas that are suggested not to be released online and to automate as much as possible of the ATIP office review process and to automatically track service standards and deadlines.

Maybe there are less technology-heavy and more administrative means to accomplish the same goals, but unless the labour impact of ATI requests on typical civil servants is addressed in some manner, any increase in ATI numbers will result in less and less timely results and the negative productivity impact of the time spent processing these requests will only increase.

The Government of Canada should adopt a procurement model that recognizes that complex problems or technological needs are rarely fully understood until organizations start experimenting with solutions, and that writing full requirements before engaging with solutions providers is incredibly limiting. This hampers government's ability to bring external expertise into problem-solving.

Key points: eagerness to take chances needs to happen in the public service, ministers can set the tone in their departments (top-down approach), aversion to risk is driven by a political landscape that includes an opposition and media waiting to point out a government’s mistakes, culture change will happen when a government changes the way it looks at citizens and government has to design digital services that put people first.

Beneficial ownership transparency requires that the real people who own/control companies be disclosed. The Panama Papers are the most recent event to draw attention to the need for beneficial ownership transparency to combat tax avoidance, tax evasion, money laundering and corruption; however, it is not a new concern.

The context

Budget 2016 sets out measures to improve tax compliance and tax integrity and to reduce tax evasion and tax avoidance [1] [2]. However, it doesn’t set out measures relating to beneficial ownership transparency, even though Canada has made commitments to beneficial ownership transparency at the 2014 G20 Brisbane Summit [3] and the 2013 G8 Summit [4]. Specific measures endorsed by the G20 are described in the Guidance on Transparency and Beneficial Ownership [5] by the Financial Action Task Force, cited in the G20 Anti-Corruption Action Plan [6].

In terms of Canada’s progress on its G20 commitments, in its 2014 G20 Anti-Corruption Working Group Accountability Report Questionnaire [7], Canada reports that it doesn’t “require that the beneficial ownership and company formation of all legal persons organized for profit be reported.” A later evaluation [8] in 2015 by Transparency International (the international secretariat, not the Canadian chapter) found Canada’s progress to be lacking.

In 2014, Canada held a consultation on the Canada Business Corporations Act [9], which included a question on beneficial ownership transparency. However, most comments addressed beneficial owners’ shareholder rights and communications means and did not engage with beneficial ownership transparency.

Beneficial ownership transparency was among the most popular ideas from Canada’s consultation on its 2014-16 action plan [10] and in the comments on its draft 2014-16 action plan [11]. The proposal was supported by Publish What You Pay Canada, Global Organization of Parliamentarians Against Corruption, Partnership Africa Canada, MiningWatch Canada, InterPARES, Canadians for Tax Fairness.

A proposal

In drafting this commitment, Canada should explore which entities should be subject to beneficial ownership transparency and how and to whom this information should be disclosed. Implementing this commitment may require coordination with provincial securities regulations and the amendment of policies and regulations. Its implementation may benefit from a public consultation.

Canada may need to review the category of Objecting Beneficial Owners (OBOs): shareholders who can hide their identity from issuers and other marketplace participants. OBOs are unique to the US and Canada. The relevant policy is the National Instrument 54-101 Communication with Beneficial Owners of Securities of a Reporting Issuer.

If there are privacy concerns with respect to the collection of personal information for beneficial ownership, Canada can request that an expert, like the Privacy Commissioner, describe the privacy concerns and explore mitigation strategies.

Other resources

OGP members with commitments for beneficial ownership transparency include the UK [12] and US [13]. Other countries have implemented beneficial ownership transparency outside the scope of the OGP, including Australia.

For additional information, the policy paper, “A Beneficial Ownership Register for the World”, by OpenCorporates, may be relevant [14]. Many additional resources are available in Canada and internationally.

In brief - Canada should fulfill the commitments it made as a member of the G20 and G7 on beneficial ownership transparency through its 2016-18 action plan.

I fully agree with James' proposal. I think this information should be open and freely available. The Inter-corporate Ownership (61-517-X) database contains information about "who owns what" in Canada. The data is quite detailed and reaches back quite some time (I believe the initial version of the product dates from the 80s and perhaps even the 1970s.) From the Statistics Canada product page: From: http://www5.statcan.gc.ca/olc-cel/olc.action?objId=61-517-X&objType=2&la... "The Inter-corporate ownership product is the most authoritative and comprehensive source of information available on corporate ownership; a unique directory of "who owns what" in Canada. It provides up-to-date information reflecting recent corporate takeovers and other substantial changes. Ultimate corporate control is determined through a careful study of holdings by corporations, the effects of options, insider holdings, convertible shares and interlocking directorships. The number of corporations that make up the hierarchy of structures totals approximately 45,000. The information that is presented is based on non-confidential returns filed by Canadian corporations under the Corporations Returns Act and on research using public sources such as internet sites.

216   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Beneficial ownership transparency We support action on beneficial ownership as part of Canada's Open Government Action Plan. This is an area where Canada falls behind many other countries and is not compliant with new international standards of transparency. The ease with which it is possible to register shell companies in Canada and the lack of verification and updating of information by many provincial and territorial governments provides opportunities for tax evaders and money launderers to commit crimes. Effective international action to fight tax havens requires that all countries adopt high standards of transparency. It is also very important that there be public registries of corporate registrations. This would benefit businesses in terms of being able to verify beneficial ownership of clients or potential business partnerships as well as boost public accountability.

218   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Beneficial ownership transparency The reportedly leaked documents from a Panamanian based law firm, colloquially described as the “Panama Papers”, highlight a broader issue of the global financial system being abused for illicit purposes such as tax evasion and money laundering, and the pressing need for the Government of Canada to take concrete steps to address the ability of some Canadians to shield themselves, and their financial activities, from Canadian authorities. That some can rig the system to hide their wealth, whether amassed legally or not, is not merely unjust; it also masks corruption and harms global development by siphoning off revenues that could be directed to education, health care and infrastructure. Despite repeated promises at the international level to address company secrecy, Transparency International recently evaluated different G20 member states beneficial ownership transparency legal framework and ranked Canada as having a ‘weak framework.’ This is in contrast to the UK, which was given the ranking ‘very strong.’ Offshore banking is not in itself illegal, and those named should not be presumed to have done anything wrong. However, secrecy attracts those with something to hide, making beneficial ownership transparency an issue of global importance. In light of this, and in the run up to the global anti-corruption summit, which will take place in London on May 12th, Transparency International Canada calls upon the Government of Canada to commit to the establishment of a mandatory public registry of all companies and trusts registered in Canada. This registry will shed light on the legal and effective owners of Canadian registered companies. Public registers of beneficial ownership allow ill-gotten gains to be more easily traced, making it more difficult and less attractive for people to benefit from the proceeds of crime. They also make it easier for financial institutions and law enforcement officials, amongst others, to quickly, and without additional cost, ascertain information about the legal and effective owners of companies and trusts. The Government of Canada has committed itself to combat the flow of proceeds of foreign corruption into Canada. Creating a public registry system would be a necessary step to uphold such a commitment. To ensure an effective registration system, TI Canada urges the Government of Canada to work with provinces to ensure similar legislation is passed in all jurisdictions.

220   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Beneficial ownership transparency Anonymous shell companies play a central role in laundering and channeling funds, concealing behind a veil of secrecy the identity of corrupt individuals and irresponsible businesses involved in criminal activities, including tax evasion, terrorist financing, and the trafficking of drugs and people. This robs governments, in both developed and developing countries, of resources that might otherwise be invested in improving public services and stimulating inclusive economic growth. The legitimacy afforded to shady shell companies registered in well-respected places like Canada makes it easy for them to open bank accounts that can wire ill-gotten money anywhere in the world. In far too many cases, this tactic has been used to rob developing countries of the resources they need to invest in health, agriculture, and poverty reduction. In addition, they exacerbate governance problems and undermine the prospects for investment and growth. This risks undercutting the billions of dollars the Government of Canada spends each year on overseas development assistance to help developing countries become more prosperous and secure. We therefore urge the Government of Canada to increase the transparency of anonymous shell companies by committing to implement public, centralized registers of beneficial ownership information.

Public protest, critique, and active engagement in public consultation needs to be seen not only as a right, but a responsibility. Employers and employees need to see civic engagement as a public service. True open dialogue is a potential with the internet, but achieving this will require the development of a society-wide support for strong (but respectful, in my opinion) intellectual freedom. This will not happen overnight or in the next couple of years. What is realistic in the short term is to begin the process of public dialogue / consultation on this topic. For example, this would need to be part of the education process, which requires consultation with provinces since education is a provincial responsibility. Putting this on the agenda for a meeting with premiers and internationally with the open government partnership strikes me as a reasonable short-term goal.

I would suggest a good way of ensuring open government is to govern openly. Take for example cannabis, your party promised to legalize it, but 6 months later have said nothing about your plan, leaving Canadians completely in the dark and creating unnecessary and unhelpful confusion and ambiguity. Another example is the TPP. Again, all we hear is that Ms. Freeland is consulting, but we don't know who and we don't know anything else about your government's position on the TPP.

If your party is serious about openness, these examples don't really demonstrate that. It isn't particularly complicated; if you want to be open and transparent, then JUST BE OPEN AND TRANSPARENT. It really is pretty straight forward.

Dear average taxpayer:

We have completed an examination of your tax filings for the last three years and we wish to inform you that you have been reassessed and now owe us $2,192.63. You erroneously claimed undocumented charitable contributions totaling $756.45 on line 349 for the years 2012-2014 and unsupported medical claims of $1,090.16 on line 332 for the same period.

Furthermore, you failed to claim capital gains on some of your meager investments and we have assessed you an additional $759.23 for tax owing. If you require a more detailed explanation for these charges, why don't you hire an accountant? You can continue to try doing your taxes on your own but don't blame us when we nail you for even more owing.

Included within these charges are penalties and accumulated interest for the three-year period under investigation. Plus, if you don't cough up what you owe within 30 days, we're going to start charging you interest at what some might call a usurious rate.

Our suggestion to you is to pay as soon as you can or we can't promise what action will be taken next. While it's true we can't put you in prison, we can make your life a living hell for as long as necessary.

Your government in action,
The CRA

Dear valued wealthy client:

First, we'd like to apologize for corresponding with you directly. We know that you prefer that we communicate with you through your accountants or your esteemed team of corporate tax lawyers. However, in this case, we were obliged to contact you directly.

We almost hate to bring it up seeing as how the matter is so trivial but the law is the law, as they say (or at least as most Canadians say). It's just that one of our overzealous auditors happened to notice that you didn't declare income from money you've been holding in the Isle of Man for a number of years.

We assume that this was an oversight and probably was due to questionable advice you may have obtained elsewhere. God knows, it's hard to keep track of income when it's in the eight or nine-figure range, or at least that's what we've been told by those in the know. So we can see how a few million here or a few million there might easily be overlooked.

Sadly, however, it looks like there's some tax owing on the Isle of Man funds. Given that we were inexcusably tardy in bringing this matter to your attention, please take as long as you want to pay. And as for penalties and interest, just forget about it -- it's on us.

Let's face it: neither of us wants a long, drawn-out court battle over this -- and anyway, only one of us can afford that. So pay what you can when you can and we'll call it even.

Your pal,
The CRA

Crowdsourcing/Open-sourcing conception and design of tangible money

Partners: Government of Canada, Minister of Finance, Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), Royal Canadian Mint, Canadian Bank Note Company, Civil Society.

TANGIBLY is a social innovation non profit national community organization established in Montreal in 2016 with a mission to enhance the social, cultural, territorial, economic and environmental well-being of communities around Canada through a nation wide Design Lab. It is specifically dedicated to taking immediate, positive and passionate action to pursue the goal of improving the social and psychological experience of the use of currency by citizens throughout the country with projects focused on exploring the potential of current and future conceptions, designs and productions of tangible money.

Money is generally known as a medium that can be exchanged for goods and services and is also used as a measure of value. Money can be divided into two types: tangible and intangible. Tangible is something that is real, capable of being touched, substantial and material. It is safe to assume that many things in our world revolve around money but now, it is time for money to revolve around every day citizens, and make changes in regular circulation currency that generates real and actual tangible benefits, rather than imaginary ones. Tangibly's mission is to empower Canadians, both men and women, to become civically engaged members of society and to participate in social innovation processes related to projects of enhanced collaborative conception and design of tangible money.

The Theory of Citizen Participation is at the core of our mission and it is to put citizens' input and participation, both men and women, and especially the youth of Canada, at the heart of ideas, designs and alternative practices for printed bank notes and minted coinage. The projects aim to unleash the human potential of the minds and hands of all citizens to enhance the experience of commerce and exchange when it comes to tangible money.

It also aims to accelerate and optimize the use of high technology innovations in tangible money production processes with a purpose of exploring ways to foster social transformation. This reflects our desire to build a more meaningful and effective Canadian economy with definite impacts; not a vague or elusive proposition.

The main strategy is to enable the implementation of a pioneering design lab and social platform (Tangibly Design Lab) for national interactive dialogue and creation processes: from idea promotion to artistic contributions in the conception and design of printed bank notes and minted coinage. We work towards building a collaborative community in a decentralized, non-hierarchical way of working together that facilitates project-specific teamwork within a larger, ongoing and permanent national community. This socially innovative on-going national platform for the empowerment and achievement of individual contributors ( idea generators, artists, graphic designers, etc.) will allow us to empower citizens to seek the right information that will allow them to pursue innovative research and designs into the conception and design of tangible money. We also strive to build an equitable and inclusive social economy to ensure all Canadians, both men and women, have the opportunity to work and thrive.

We believe the social economy of Canada needs to be recognized worldwide for its ability to foster innovative solutions to economic disparity. We aim for a more just, prosperous and caring society through excellent research, effective networked collaboration and knowledge dissemination, and provide a valued neutral space within which an open dialogue among all interested parties can take place. We believe in using art for social change, to contribute significantly to the progress of a healthy democracy, by creating a sustainable sense of belonging to Canada and the power to produce tangible impacts. We are working on multi-sectoral partnerships that will allow for the tangible money of Canada to look like the innovations and new realities Canadians work so hard for, in order for these same Canadians to benefit from an immense increase in personal and psychological well-being. Improving the lives of Canadians—and contributing to a more resilient society—requires breakthrough ideas and approaches, game changing strategies and collaborations, and continuous innovation.To bring these values and projects into actual physical existence, we envision multiple possible futures for tangible currency. This includes Provincial and Territorial Empowerment Initiatives, and increased and complete knowledge diffusion on the principles of bank note and minted currency conceptions, designs and productions processes. While focusing on identifying innovations that are scaleable and have deep impact to create a more financially resilient society, and a thriving more beautiful Canadian economy, our aim is to create the future of tangible money that will reflect Canadian society and innovations, along side values of economic rights and financial inclusion.

347   Contact Us Contactez-nous Deficit spending - not in favour

Hello,

The budget released Tuesday March 22, indicates an increasing budget deficit.

Please ensure that the right people know my serious reservations and concerns about this. It is not responsible to spend more money than the government brings in. It seems reckless to do so and stunts the long term prosperity and growth of the country. This also sets a poor example for the country's citizens to follow. Citizens, businesses and government should all attempt to manage their own finances wisely. Despite the pain of not being able to afford something immediately it is better to spend when the money is there rather than to foster indebtedness.

Please, please spend our country's money wisely and frugally. Please don't run a deficit. We Canadians work hard to earn our money and try hard to live within our means. It feels disrespectful that our nation not also strive to do the same in a display of solidarity with us. Being fiscally prudent may not have much glitz and glamour but in the long term it will set up the country for even greater success. Please could you pass along this note and sentiments within to the Finance Minister Bill Morneau and to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau? I realize that I'm just one voice and I question what really 'one voice' can do. But I believe that many many Canadians, regardless their political affiliation, would echo my thoughts. Thank you.

349 84 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Develop an open data standard for…

The Government of Canada has an opportunity to use this OGP action plan to solve a concrete problem by developing and implementing a new Grants and Contributions (G&C) Data Standard to make improved G&C data available to citizens, the nonprofit sector, and public officials. Canada is already recognized internationally as a leader in the quality and availability of data about its nonprofit sector [1]. Improved G&Cs data will enable Canadians to better understand government spending to its nonprofit sector and to use that understanding to engage in solution-finding in communities and to partner with government on social policy objectives.

The Proposal

G&Cs are the main ways that our government funds organizations in support of program objectives like community development, integration of refugees, or youth engaging in physical activity. The Directive on Open Government already compels departments to release grants & contributions programs data. However, it does not dictate a standard format for the data.

We propose that the Government of Canada include in its action plan a commitment to develop and implement a new standard for publishing G&C data. This will ensure that the information published is detailed and structured enough to be useful for a wide variety of stakeholders and is interoperable with data from other departments and about other government expenditures (e.g. contracts). The design of that standard must be done with input from open data experts, policy makers, and nonprofit representatives.

The Need

Both the nonprofit sector and the federal government have clearly identified that more and better information about the sector, including its funding via G&Cs, is required for improved policy and decision-making. In 2003, the National Survey of Non-profit and Voluntary Organizations (NSNVO) [2] was initiated to meet that information need by “collecting comprehensiveinformation about the breadth of Canada’s nonprofit and voluntary sector, the types of organizations that make up the sector, and the areas in which they are active” [3]. Unfortunately, this valuable survey was only conducted once.

A second example of a need for more G&C information was documented in the Independent Blue Ribbon Panel on Federal Grant and Contribution Programs, which was commissioned by the Treasury Board in 2006 [4]. One of its top recommendations was improved information sharing “[t]o reduce the burden on clients and improve service, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat should [...] ensure that relevant information about federal investments in grants and contributions is easily available across government”, and included a specific recommendation for “the sharing [of a] recipient’s grant and contribution funding history” through business numbers. While this report resulted in many positive changes in how federal G&Cs were made, the recommendations for improved information sharing remain to be fulfilled.

The Benefits

Developing and implementing a standard for open G&C data will:

  • Allow the nonprofit sector to identify, understand, and plan around the distribution of funds and resources, as well as increase opportunities for collaboration.
  • Increase the value of data from individual departments by making it machine-readable and compatible across departments.
  • Enable policymakers, researchers, media, and others to perform analysis on patterns of spending — leading to greater accountability, better policies and more effective services.
  • Demonstrate financial transparency to Canadians.
  • Enhance Canada’s global leadership by being the first national government to publish structured, standardized data about all grants and contributions.
  • It is important to emphasize that the only way that these benefits are achieved is if this data is published in a robust data standard designed specifically for these use cases. Publishing basic machine-readable data along the lines of what is currently available will not provide these results. This is why an advisory group must be consulted to develop this standard. Fortunately, Canada has deep expertise in this area, having been involved as a key contributor to many internationally recognized data standards.

    Through Canada’s leadership in the Open Government Partnership (OGP) and the International Open Data Charter, this standard could become a global norm for G&C-type of spending data. Because of Canada’s expertise with multiple data standards, the G&C data standard could easily be designed to be interoperable with other international data initiatives such as procurement transparency, fiscal transparency, non-profit grantmaking, corporate transparency and international development aid transparency.

    354   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Develop an open data standard for… In support of this proposal: All companies and nonprofits operating in Canada report to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) using business numbers or other identifiers. To assist in linking government disclosures to specific entities, the Government of Canada should publish the names, business numbers and other identifiers of all reporting entities. Currently, Canada only publishes the numbers and identifiers of federally incorporated entities [1]. A new dataset should include, at minimum, the names, numbers and identifiers of provincially incorporated entities that report to the CRA. Without this dataset, merging the information provided by different governments and other sources into a single database to perform analysis is prohibitively expensive. When numbers and identifiers can be used as unique keys, merging is quick and easy. Preparing and releasing this new dataset would lower the cost of using all disclosures relating to nonprofits, including grants and contributions disclosures, thus increasing the use of the disclosures and enabling positive impacts from that use. 1. http://open.canada.ca/data/en/dataset/0032ce54-c5dd-4b66-99a0-320a7b5e99f2 English Anglais   Grants & Contribution Subventions et contributions CRA Services Services de l’Agence du revenu du Canada Fiscal transparency Transparence fiscale Other Autres Future Consideration

    356   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Develop an open data standard for… This is an excellent idea! Not only is this information important for understanding the the Government of Canada's stewardship of resources, it is crucial to improving decision making across the philanthropic sector. Federal grants and contributions directly affect the front line programming that occurs in communities across the country and should be taken into account whenever other funding bodies and grant makers make their own granting decisions. Having clear and usable data of what programs are being funded, and what level of investment is being made in addressing social challenges will improve the subsequent decision making of local governments, private foundations, and community foundations. Once a useful standard for reporting this data is established, other funders will be able to improve their reporting and more robust sets of sector wide data will be possible. From a grant making perspective (I work for Edmonton Community Foundation), standardized and open data of grants and contributions will profoundly improve decision making across the philanthropic sector.

    380   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Digital Preservation A different sort of approach here might involve government support of a project like IPFS: https://ipfs.io/ IPFS is a storage layer aspiring to become a critical part of internet infrastructure. It basically stores and finds data via a random-looking ID, that is derived directly from the contents of the file. This is in contrast to the current way of finding things, which involves storing named (ie labelled) files on specific servers. The benefit of IPFS's approach is that anyone can store the data and serve it. Since any version of -- for example -- a specific PDF file would the exact same label, anyone with the file could send it in response to a request. So instead of someone looking for "some-file.pdf", their computer would look for the random-looking (but NOT random) ID of the file, something like "f5dd819a2018b2283e80bbf3b14c74b7e0f1bc48017e764364908a8584c7d846". That ID is derived directly from the contents of the file itself. Changing even the smallest thing (like the "last modified date" of the file), would completely change the ID. So long-story-short, as long as at least one person in Canada was interested in a file, they would have it in a Dropbox-like folder in their computer and could serve it to anyone else interested in having it. When IPFS gets up to speed, it's expected that some organizations (akin to the Internet Archive) will likely step up to warehouse lots of important information, like they currently do on the web. But the nice part of IPFS is that it allows anyone to contribute to the warehousing of data, just by keeping it on their own computer in a specific shareable place, preventing it from being lost.

I find it self-serving for the government to single-out the need to deny "frivolous and vexatious" requests from the public. Is this really a top-10 problem? Most criticism of the Act to date has focused on delays, lack of response and bad faith on the part of government institutions. Do we really need to give government authorities more reasons and latitude to say no? The reform proposals coming forward are pretty thin gruel so far and sadly reflect largely the perspectives of those on only one side of the service counter, i.e.. the government's. Let's hope this consultation doesn't just reinforce that!

Secondly, while individual Canadians have an inherent right of privacy, businesses and corporations do not. Any business or corporation wanting to do business with the Government of Canada or the Parliament of Canada should be prepared to accept openness and transparency in the expenditure of taxpayer dollars, or not bid on government contracts. Specific trade secrets may be protected, subject to the authority of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. Thirdly, Crown Corporations and other agencies, boards and commissions at the federal government level should be subject to the same openness and transparency as the Government of Canada proper, with the same limited exceptions as described. Finally, Canadian citizens, acting as private individuals, have the right to free and open access to public information. Professional journalists, registered lobbyists, agents of non-governmental organizations, and others acting on behalf of an association or group, may be asked to pay a nominal fee to defray the costs associated with information requests, provided such fee does not pose a deterrent to making such requests."

    Parliaments around the world are adopting open parliament action plans as part of their Open Government National Action Plans. Legislative openness has been called "one of the greatest success stories of the OGP" [2]. The House of Commons of Canada could endorse the principles set out in the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness [3]. Supported by 140 organizations in 75 countries, the Declaration promotes a culture of openness by making parliamentary information transparent, easing access to parliamentary information, and enabling electronic communication of parliamentary information. Endorsing the Declaration would send a clear institutional signal to all Canadians that Parliament is commitment to these principles and opportunities for future collaboration on open parliament initiatives. Working with civil society, the Speaker of the House of Commons of Canada, or another parliamentary body, could explore which parliamentary mechanism would be appropriate to achieve this commitment idea.

The principles of parliamentary openness aim to create a culture fostering transparency, accountability, citizen participation and parliamentary ethics. Canada has shown leadership in this area through the parliament’s legislative information service PARLINFO, the publication of parliamentarians’ expenditures report, mechanisms for engaging citizens on draft legislation, and its strong Conflict of Interest Code for current and former parliamentarians.

    The data published by the Parliament of Canada -- like votes and speeches, and much more -- is generally of high quality and consistency. Yet, parliament could make more data accessible in open data format if it's information management approach engaged parliamentary data users more systematically.

    High volume data users like Parliament.ca note that too often information that's technically available sometimes lacks documentation, support of any kind, or the licensing is not open/permissive. In some cases, like audio/video, the data is available internally but not available to the public, or in open data format. The demand for this data may not be clearly communicated nor acknowledged.

    Committee schedules and other committee data, on the other hand, are not published as data. For a few years post-2011, whenever a section of parl.gc.ca was redesigned, XML data was included. Unfortunately, when the committees website was (nicely!) redone a few months ago, no data was included. It would be useful to include open data in all new development work.

    There are other potentially interesting legislative data that isn't available, like structured data for legislation, written questions/answers and other tabled documents.

    The work of the Hansard office is also a noteworthy example. While it does truly heroic indexing work, carefully categorizing each speech within a structured ontology, this isn't included in their public document XML, which could be extremely useful for research. A lot of great technical work is done, but in isolation from the needs of data users.

    For parliamentary data users, and Canadians at large, having someone in the House of Commons with "open data" in their job description, who could engage with users, would be great step towards increasing open communication. This commitment idea, therefore, calls for an engagement process with parliamentary data users and stakeholders. This National Action Plan is an opportunity to develop a common approach and vision for a dynamic and innovative parliamentary data ecosystem in Canada.

    442 16 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Enhancing Whistleblower Protection

    Problem to be addressed: Canada’s current legal framework for whistleblowing is outdated and out of step with internationally recognized best practices. The most serious deficiencies are 1) lack of protection for public sector whistleblowers, either at a federal or provincial level, and 2) an almost complete lack of coverage of the private sector.

    Most of the current legislation focuses on procedures for handling allegations of wrongdoing, rather than on protection for the whistleblowers. At the federal level, the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act (PSDPA) created two new agencies: (1) the Office of the Public Sector Integrity Commissioner and (2) the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Tribunal. Only the Tribunal can provide whistleblowers with a remedy, but access to the Tribunal is controlled by the Integrity Commissioner. The effectiveness of this mechanism has been brought into question, as the Commissioner has referred only seven whistleblowers to the Tribunal, and no case has yet reached the point where the Tribunal could order a remedy for the whistleblower.

    One example of the shortcomings of the PSDPA is that the onus is on the whistleblower to prove that adverse actions were intended by the employer as reprisals: an almost impossible task. Best practice is to reverse the onus by requiring the employer to prove that adverse actions against the whistleblower were not reprisals. Of the six provinces that have whistleblowing laws, only one (Ontario) provides a mechanism for whistleblowers who have suffered reprisals to seek a remedy. None of Canada’s whistleblowing laws contains adequate measures for preventing or halting reprisals in the first place, before the whistleblower suffers serious harm.

    There is virtually no coverage of the private sector in Canadian whistleblowing laws. The federal law (the PSDPA) does not address private sector wrongdoing. For the public sector wrongdoing that it does cover, the PSDPA does not allow private sector participants to be either investigated or sanctioned.

    There are currently no steps being taken to bring Canadian laws in line with best practices per Canada’s G20 commitment. The PSDPA, which came into force in 2007, requires that the President of the Treasury Board conduct a five year review of the legislation and report on the review to Parliament and the Senate. Despite this legal obligation, no review has been conducted to date.

    Main Objective: Demonstrate a commitment to creating a strong federal legislative framework that will enable workers in both the private and public sectors to speak up about wrongdoing, risk or malpractice without fear of reprisal; and work with the provinces to provide similar frameworks at a provincial level.

    OGP Challenge Addressed: Improving public integrity, improving public services, increasing corporate accountability

    Verifiable and measurable milestones to fulfill the commitment:

    Conduct a formal and independent review of the Public Servants Disclosure Protection Act, with substantive input from civil society and internationally-recognized experts, and publicize the recommendations of the review (August 2017)

    Draft and table amendments to existing federal law to afford whistleblower protection to all cases of wrongdoing involving government resources, regardless of the employment status of the participants (public or private sector) (2018).

    Launch a public consultation on the development of a federal whistleblower protection law that covers private sector wrongdoing (2018).

    Establish a dialogue with the provincial governments and agencies, particularly those without whistleblower protection laws, to discuss how to enhance whistleblower protection in these jurisdictions (2017).

However, the ability of the press to lift the veil on corruption in the public and private sectors often hinges upon courageous individuals willing to speak up about wrongdoings. Too often, these whistleblowers pay a serious price and face losing their livelihoods and threats to their personal safety. Canada must take action to strengthen whistleblower protection for individuals in the public and private sector. I support TI-Canada's submission, which calls upon the government to take action to reform Canada's whistleblowing laws. TI-Canada's submission details clear milestones, which should be spelled out in Canada's Action Plan on Open Government 2016-2018. Canada cannot effectively fight corruption, if those people who put everything on the line to expose it, are not protected. English Anglais   Other - Whistleblower Autres – Dénonciateur NA S.O.

    446 1 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Environmental enforcement and compliance database

    In its 2011 report, “Getting tough on environmental crime? Holding the Government of Canada to account on environmental enforcement” [1], Ecojustice includes five recommendations relating to open government and open data (see pages 64 to 69):

    • The Government of Canada, led by Environment Canada, should establish and seek funding to maintain a comprehensive online environmental enforcement and compliance database for all federal environmental laws and regulations. The database should be updated regularly (monthly) and should enable geographic and facility-based data analysis.
    • Work towards releasing enforcement information across all Government of Canada departments in a consistent manner using multiple user-friendly formats.
    • Fulfill the promise of open government and proactive disclosure policies by releasing the enforcement and compliance information for these particular laws that are stored in the restricted NEMISIS database.
    • Ensure that sufficient resources are available for departments, particularly Environment Canada, to do the necessary reporting and associated quality control.
    • Departments within the federal government, including but not limited to Environment Canada, Fisheries and Oceans Canada and Transport Canada, should proactively and comprehensively release all non-confidential information regarding enforcement actions, including but not limited to: inspections, investigations, warnings, orders, prosecutions, convictions, penalties/fines, and number of facilities, as well as compliance information concerning regulated entities. If this is not achieved through a comprehensive online database for the whole of the federal government, then it should at a minimum be released on department websites and as part of annual reporting under specific laws.

    447 7 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Establish a multi-stakeholder forum

    Within the Open Government Partnership, government and civil society are intended to be partners and co-creators of the National Action Plan.

    To achieve this, over 30 OGP countries use multi-stakeholder forums. The forums provide a permanent dialogue mechanism between government and civil society, participating as equal partners in agreeing the National Action Plan and planning and monitoring in its implementation. For additional context, we are sending via email an OGP draft document describing these forums.

    To date, the Government of Canada has been going through each stage of the OGP process unilaterally, without the active participation and collaboration of civil society.

    To remedy this, on March 29, we launched the Canadian Open Government Civil Society Network (http://www.opengovdialogue.ca). Our purpose is to establish a permanent dialogue mechanism and to engage more civil society organizations in the OGP. Since then, 26 organizations have signed the letter of intent (attached with signatories).

    To lead the network, an interim steering committee was formed. Its members are:

    Gail Davidson, Lawyers' Rights Watch Canada David Fewer, Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic Jean-Noé Landry, Open North Michael Lenczner, Powered by Data James McKinney Toby Mendel, Centre for Law and Democracy Sukanya Pillay, Canadian Civil Liberties Association

    After discussions and meetings with civil servants in the Treasury Board Secretariat, we are submitting a proposal for a multi-stakeholder forum (attached).

    In preparing this proposal, we spoke with civil society representatives in countries with permanent dialogue mechanisms, we spoke with the OGP Support Unit to learn about other countries’ experiences, we built on the resources they provided, and we integrated their feedback to our proposal.

    Many OGP countries have formed multi-stakeholder forums through executive decrees and similar instruments. Canada’s forum should be formed through an Order-in-Council, to protect it from easily becoming inactive through, for example, the neglect of a new government after an election. We can provide sample orders from other countries.

    We look forward to further refining this proposal in the next phase of the consultation on the OGP National Action Plan in June.

    Regards,
    James McKinney, on behalf of the Interim Steering Committee of the Canadian Open Government Civil Society Network

There is also Canadiana.ca, a non-profit which is funded by Innovation Canada and Canadian universities, uses office space in LAC, and so is controlled by government organizations. Its data is not open. What will happen in this case?

    465 7 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Fiber Optic Internet Access for All citizens

    Internet access is now recognized as a fundamental human right for the 21st century. To ensure the wealth of people, the wealth of communities, the wealth of a 21st century social-political-economy, the wealth of nations requires a ubiquitous digital infrastructure as a public commons. Only in this way can all the spill-over benefits and network effects be nourished and harnessed. Infrastructure is best managed and governed as a commons.

    The most salient costs in the 21st century are increasingly 'opportunity costs' the costs involved in generating and seizing opportunity. In an age of accelerating change -the key to sustainable social conditions is the scaling of learning - life-long learning. Only a digital infrastructure that is not held hostage to 'rent-seeking' incumbents can provide the neutrality and access for unparalleled, unprecedented connectivity.

    The social-political economy of the 21st century will involve exponential growth in virtual goods, services, innovation - because information is not scarce nor is it a 'rival' good. Our future economy and society must provide the infrastructure and commons that enable inclusive, ubiquitous, and unpredictable participation.

    598   Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Global and cross-sector collaboration on open data for agriculture and nutrition

    Making open data work for agriculture and nutrition requires a shared agenda to increase the supply, quality, and interoperability of data, alongside action to build capacity for the use of data.

    The Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition (GODAN) initiative includes partners from across the globe, States, Private Companies, Civil Society, united by the common belief that sharing agriculture and nutrition data makes us stronger, more innovative and as a result, in a better position to address the emerging food security challenge while developing wealth through the stimulation of global ag markets. The key pillars of the organisation are private and public world leaders, clear supporters of knowledge and innovation.

    The GODAN network can act as a convener, bringing to Governments solutions, ideas, expertise around the world from other governments on how to solve common problems through the use of open data. For example: ensure public access to weather data, trade data, geographic data, soil and water data, registries of agricultural inputs - to use open data to monitor and enhance the implementation of key food security, agriculture and nutrition plans, and the full achievement of the SDGs.

    GODAN can introduce relevant Government officials to success stories, lessons learned, interoperability, through access, dissemination, licensing - with a special focus on increasing agricultural and nutrition productivity. Currently there are 5,135 agriculture datasets and 20 nutrition datasets available on Canada’s Open Data Portal [1] [2]. We would like to help advocate for and facilitate the release of many more datasets of general public interest in these areas.

    GODAN is in a unique position, acting as the connection between the ultimate data users - the population - those who make it possible developing applications that make use of it to answer needs from the public - the private sector - and Governments, source of the data and in turn, of additional satisfaction from the populations.

    In other words, through open data, GODAN helps Governments and civil society build up a true partnership for development.

    For more information, please contact us at enquiries@godan.info

    599 6 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Government-wide waiver of Crown copyright

    The Government of Canada should study the possibility of an all-of-government or selective waiver of Crown copyright. If “data paid for by Canadians belongs to Canadians,” as written in the Liberal platform [1], then Canadians should by default have the right to copy, modify and distribute these data without restriction. Establishing this legal norm will further accelerate the transition to open by default, as all information and data would be “born” open.

    In New Zealand, such a waiver was considered during the development of its NZGOAL (New Zealand Government Open Access and Licensing) framework [2]: “At a policy level, guidance which advocated all-of-government or even selective waiving of Crown copyright (for departments) and copyright (for other State Services agencies) would be a substantial move and one which is considered more appropriate for consideration in the context of any future reform of the Copyright Act.”

    In Canada, a reform of the Copyright Act is not necessary, as the Copyright Act already allows for selective waiver of Crown copyright. For example, the Reproduction of Federal Law Order [3] is an Order in Council permitting the reproduction of federal law. Tamir Israel of CIPPIC described some of the considerations in this mailing list thread [4].

    Potential 2016-18 commitment to meet with a cross-section of youth advocacy groups roughly biannually to develop and implement a GC-wide youth engagement strategy tied to citizen engagement writ large. Some of the groups who were really interested in our work on open gov:

    • Samara Canada
    • STEM Fellowship Student Research and Innovation Network
    • Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (Ryerson)
    • SHAD (charity supporting exceptional secondary school students (e.g., future Rhodes scholars))
    • Young Diplomats Canada
    • CIVIX
    • Apathy is Boring
    • And MaRS itself – there may be really good ties into the ongoing maintenance/summit for the National Youth Leadership and Innovation Strategy
    English Anglais

    Engagement potentiel en 2016-2018 pour rencontrer une portion des groupes de pression de jeunes à peu près deux fois par an pour développer et mettre en œuvre une stratégie de mobilisation des jeunes pangouvernementale liée à la mobilisation citoyenne au grand complet. Voici certains des groupes qui étaient très intéressés dans notre travail sur le gouvernement ouvert :

    • Samara Canada
    • STEM Fellowship Student Research and Innovation Network
    • Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship (Ryerson)
    • SHAD (organisme de bienfaisance appuyant les étudiants exceptionnels d’écoles secondaires [p. ex., futurs boursiers de Rhodes])
    • Jeunes diplomates du Canada
    • CIVIX
    • L’apathie c’est plate
    • Et MaRS lui-même – Il pourrait y avoir de vraiment bonnes relations dans la maintenance permanente ou le sommet pour la Stratégie nationale du leadership et de l’innovation des jeunes

    Great work!

    Any progress on the consideration of open source software? For example, source code could be added to the list (e.g. datasets, digital records and source code)?

    If we search "Canada Open Source" in Google, the first result points to this idea submitted as part of the Action Plan 2.0 Consultation : http://open.canada.ca/en/Open_Source_Software

    Lot of great comments and the response from the OpenGov team was:

    Formalizing our approach to the use of open source tools through Canada’s Action Plan on Open Government is certainly an option that we will explore.

    Some departments have already established guidelines to using and distributing open source tools; this could be scaled up.

    Thanks for any info you can give us :)

    English Anglais

    Bon travail!

    Y a-t-il un quelconque progrès sur la considération d’un logiciel en source libre? Par exemple, le code source pourrait-il être ajouté à la liste (p. ex., jeux de données, enregistrements numériques et code source)?

    Si nous cherchons « Canada source libre » dans Google, le premier résultat nous redirige vers cette idée qui faisait partie de la consultation pour le Plan d’action 2.0 : http://ouvert.canada.ca/fr/Logiciels_libres

    Il y avait beaucoup de commentaires et de réponses utiles de l’équipe du gouvernement ouvert comme :

    Formaliser notre approche à l’utilisation d’outils en source libre par le Plan d’action pour un gouvernement ouvert du Canada est très certainement une idée que nous allons explorer.

    Quelques ministères ont déjà établi des lignes directrices pour l’utilisation et la distribution d’outils en source libre; cela pourrait être augmenté.

    Merci pour tous les renseignements que vous pouvez nous fournir :)

    Trudeau Government Asks for ideas on open government

    Some initial thoughts on my short list:

    • The hardest issue of all: changing the culture and enforcing a default obligation of openness;
    • Provide information in electronic formats that allow manipulation for analytical purposes. The previous government only released public opinion research data tables in pdf format, rather than in spreadsheets. More recently, PCO was unable (or unwilling) to export its database of GiC appointments in spreadsheet format, requiring me to recreate this already public information;
    • Expanded data sets, issued regularly in a timely fashion. My initial list, starting with citizenship:
    • in addition to top 10 (consider top 25) countries of birth, have complete table or one mapped to IRCC operational regions (top 10 only covers about 50 percent of new citizens)
    • naturalization rate after 6 years of permanent residency, broken down country of birth mapped to IRCC operational regions
    • naturalization rate after 6 years of permanent residency by immigration category, gender and province
    • citizenship test pass (language and knowledge) results by country of birth mapped to IRC operational regions

    For passports, numbers related to:

    • top 25 countries of birth (all)
    • top 25 countries of birth (foreign-born)
    • number of passports issued abroad mapped to IRC operational region (to give sense of Canadian expatriates)
    • breakdown by country of birth of passports issued abroad
    • Appointments: regular employment equity type reporting for all GiC appointments.

    1007   Email Courriel idea submission

    Hello, I was very happy to see this government initiative and to be able to share our ideas to shape the Action Plan on Open Government.

    I am however unsure as to what details a detailed submission.

    How details should it be or should I simply describe it in broad strokes and email more details if the idea seems interesting.

    Take for example the theme of Fiscal Transparency,

    I would think that it would be beneficial for the government to issue a one page example of how the average Canadian taxes are spent by percentages. So many time we must turn to biased think tanks such as the Fraser or Broadbent institute. These of course are biased and might be 100% honest with Canadians.

    Ex:
    Defence X %
    Transfer payment X %
    Dept. Foreign Affairs X %
    CRA X %
    Etc. X %

    Should i detail this further? What kind of information should I provide?

    Thanks for your help.

    1028 2 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Innovation for the public good Shape policy to ensure that the public good is central to benefits that accrue through opening government information and data. Recognize that there are both benefits and dangers to opening up government data for commercial exploitation. For example, in opening up government data to commercialization, there is a potential to shift from free public services to for-pay commercial services. Take action to make sure that this does not happen. Suggestions for action: 1) do not allow private services to interfere with free government services (e.g. paying a search engine to have private services developed from free public goods appear before free government services should be illegal); 2) insist on quid pro quo, i.e. commercial services from free public goods should at minimum provide free basic service - this would require a modification to the open government license, which is advisable in my opinion; and 3) ensure that private interests benefiting from free public goods give back to the public good through taxes. The global nature of the internet means that this would take an international effort. I would love to see Canada make good use of our leadership in open data to push for this.

    1032   Detailed Submission Soumission détaillée Internal email from Service for Business, ISED

    Thank you for holding the Open Government session last evening, it was nice to hear from the different perspectives and also the opportunity to network.

    A little background, I’m the manager of the Service Innovation Team within the Service for Business Branch at Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED). My group is responsible for the online delivery of two multi-jurisdictional initiatives designed to help support Canadian entrepreneurs to start, grow and comply with government rules and regulations.

    To achieve these objectives, the Canada Business Network (CBN - http://www.canadabusiness.ca/eng/) provides integrated access to government programs and services from two levels of government (federal, provincial & territorial) and BizPaL - http://services.bizpal-perle.ca//?b=01 a tool to help find business licenses and permits from all levels of government (federal, provincial & territorial, regional & municipal).

    We are consumers of Open Data as we need to leverage these components to create an integrated service for our business clients.

    One of the main reason for attending last night’s event was to see if there are opportunities for groups like ourselves who do not own specific data sets to contribute to the Open Government initiative. What we can offer does not fit into the current definition of Open Data.

    My questions are:

    1. Are there opportunities to expand the scope/definition of Open Government to include a new category called “Open Services”? This category would include pre-packed web services/widgets that will extend proven client centric functionalities to partners serving the same clients. Similar to Open Data, there is no effort required from the consuming partner to manage the raw elements that enable this functionality.

    To date we have 3 widgets (1 production ready and 2 in beta):

    • NAICS keyword Lookup – Provides a user friendly way for businesses to self–identify their industry sector through the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) (e.g. can replace free text fields or long drop down list in forms when asking businesses to self-identify their business sector such as tax, Import/export forms and it can help searches where business identify their sector to narrow down the search results)
    • SGC Lookup (Beta) – Provides fast look up of municipalities, regions, cities etc. by leveraging a common keyword thesaurus to help standardize client entries (e.g. can be used for client’s self-identifying which jurisdiction they belong to in a form or from a client interface)
    • Federal/provincial/territorial Program Search (Beta) – Extends the financing search capabilities within Canada Business Network to third party websites to quickly customize a search for government programs and services (e.g. used by organizations that may wish to customize the program search results based on audience, jurisdiction, types of financing and purpose of financing)

    We have plans to build a predictive engine for the CBN to pull related customized information for clients this year and once developed we want to create it in widget form so other organizations can leverage it to support their services.

    In addition to the above widgets, we also offer access to the asset building blocks (e.g. program summary descriptions, blog articles, topic pages) of the Canada Business Network website through an API with a structured definition to help content consumer better understand the context of the metadata tags. We currently syndicate CBN & BizPaL content to provincial partners to support the content within their respective portals as well as to private organization such as YouInc.com, who re-purposed CBN blogs as they developed their portal. In this case, the API would not fit under the category of Open Service.

    2. From an implementation perspective, will the plan include a level of detail that calls for standards on making open data sets/API/Extracts more user friendly?

    The biggest challenge as a consumer of Open Data is the absence of insight into the challenges of those wishing to use data from the authoritative sources. Aside from which technical format is best suited for the various types of content, there’s an absence standards around metadata documentation. For example, the content creators or owners need to approach classification from a non-GoC perspective and providing supporting documents to give the consumers a chance of understanding why data/information has been categorize in the manner it is presented.

    3. One of the biggest hurdle to Open Government is cultural shift at all levels of government, has your group thought about how you will break the impasse between the mandate and resistance from individual product owners? How can Open Data exist when Stats Canada has a cost recovery model?

    Ideally Open data should come from the authoritative source, what if the authoritative source is unable or unwilling to open up their data? What guidance can you provide to organizations that are willing, have the ability and access to free (Public Works buy and sell data) or purchased (Stats Canada) data? Do they have an obligation to move forward on an interim basis to make the data into a consumable format and publish it as open data? If that is a possible option, what type of mandate coverage is required to move Open Government forward (e.g. working with authoritative source, copy right, communication etc.)?

And on the other hand this privatization of knowledge slow down research and development, in the name of private profit. Not smart!

    1042 35 Suggest an idea Suggérer une idée Inventions ouvertes / Open Inventions

    BACKGROUND Inventions are key to society. They lead to innovation and progress, which in turn help improve our quality of life and well-being. That’s why the government of Canada invests a substantial amount of money in research and development by funding its own science based departments and agencies as well universities and industry through various funding programs. As a result, the Canadian government is the source of many inventions developed in Canada.

    But what happens to these inventions then? Typically, inventions are handled with traditional intellectual property management approaches: trade secrets, patenting, licensing and transfers to industry. These methods have their roots in a strong belief that the socioeconomic benefits we can derive from inventions will be greater if their ownership is kept private and exclusive.

    On the other hand, history has shown that inventions that are freely and openly available can have significant socioeconomic impacts: X-rays, penicillin, the Internet and the World Wide Web to name a few. None if these key inventions were patented.

    THE PROBLEM Current Open Government and Open Science efforts do not propose mechanisms to pro-actively set government inventions free. The open publication of scientific articles describing an invention and the release of associated scientific data are a step in the right direction as they inform, often in a detailed and exhaustive way, of the nature of the invention. However, these open approaches do not permit the use and the deployment of the invention by others. This ultimately results in reduced dissemination of government inventions and slower progress for our society.

    THE SOLUTION Under the new Action Plan on Open Government 2016-2018, an “Open Inventions” initiative would propose strategies, policies and tools to support and foster the pro-active release of government funded inventions openly and for free. To achieve this, tools such as an “Open Government Inventions Portfolio”, new departmental intellectual property policies and a standardized “Open Government Patent Pledge” would be developed to constitute the required legal foundation.

    In a way, the proposed “Open Inventions” approach is to government funded inventions what Creative Commons is to copyrighted works and what the open source software movement is to software.

    I am writing on behalf of Canadian Journalists for Free Expression, the Canadian Association of Journalists, Newspapers Canada, Fédération Professionnelle des Journalistes du Québec and the Centre for Free Expression to follow up on our February 17, 2016 letter to your office regarding access to information reform.

    The letter expressed our desire, as organizations with expertise in access to information, to meet with you to discuss the elements essential to effective ATI reform. We are encouraged by your commitment to engaging with civil society to shape the Action Plan on Open Government 2016–18, and we believe our organizations can help. After many years of neglect, Canada’s access to information system is in crisis. As you have rightly said, our country deserves a more open and more accountable government, and updating the Access to Information Act is a vital part of that initiative.

    We would like to reiterate our request to meet with you at your earliest convenience to discuss specific ideas about how to reform Canada’s access to information system. We will follow up with your office in the coming days to explore dates that would be possible for you to meet with us, and look forward to working together to explore ways we can make access to information reform a reality.

    Excited by Donald Trump and Randall Munroe's Thing Explainer, a book that lots of people like, I suggest that when government talks to people with written words, they add a few lines of words using a smaller set of English/French (like the top 1000 words that people use, and some other words for government) The idea would be to make sure politicians and civil servants speak in a clear and forced-simple way.

    1046   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Make code available for reuse across GoC & release to the public I completely agree with this. One additional criteria needs to be added, however. Code that is released by the government should NOT have to be translated into both official languages. Instead, software with comments in EITHER official language should be released as soon as possible. All Federal government releases are currently mandated to be in both official languages. This policy has the unintended consequence of slowing down public data/code releases. An anecdote: I used to work at Statistics Canada and officials there withheld open-sourcing software only because the lead developer worked in French and her comments in the code had not been translated to English. This was nearly a decade ago and the code has still not been released.

In many cases, public release of code is a win-win cost-cutting measure, in that sharing of code is about reducing the burden of development for the government, enabling collaboration with private sector, other levels of government of even internationally.

    Emulate the Government Digital Service's Design Principles, especially the last point:

    "We should share what we’re doing whenever we can. With colleagues, with users, with the world. Share code, share designs, share ideas, share intentions, share failures. The more eyes there are on a service the better it gets — howlers are spotted, better alternatives are pointed out, the bar is raised. Much of what we’re doing is only possible because of open source code and the generosity of the web design community. We should pay that back."

    Fits in nicely with the USA's model too https://playbook.cio.gov/#play13

    In 2014, NRCan held a consultation on mandatory reporting standards relating to the Extractive Sector Transparency Measures Act (ESTMA): http://open.canada.ca/en/consultations/mandatory-reporting-standards-for-extractive-sector-what-we-heard

    Among the 16 submissions, 10 requested a centralized database of the mandatory reports and 6 requested a machine-readable reporting template. The motivations for, and benefits of, these two recommendations are described in detail in the submissions, so I will not repeat them here.

    I have not been able to determine whether these two recommendations have been taken forward or responded to. I therefore suggest them for inclusion in the National Acton Plan.

    If this idea is developed into a commitment, I recommend consulting with the organizations that submitted both recommendations:

I consider geocoding one such service. Most data has a spatial component in the form of an address. By offering a free, national, geocoding web service whose responses are licensed under the Open Government License, that address can be turned into a geographic location which can be displayed on a map and subject to the full range of spatial analysis tools. For example, an Apartment Rental Finder website can take addresses from landlords, convert them to geographic locations, and display them on a map to prospective tenants looking for rentals in a given area. Existing free geocoders don’t have authoritative data and are too restrictive in their terms of use. Commercial geocoders are so expensive, they pose an obstacle to innovation for Canadian web developers.

One attendee suggested there should be a kind of race to the top – for example, could the GC or the Gov on Mtl become ‘open by default’ first? PERSONAL INFORMATION REMOVED noted that there are no defined success metrics for ‘open by default’ – it’s an important principle, but there does not seem to be a clear end point at which a government could truly say ‘we are open by default’. Attendees stated that they themselves want to be the judge of openness, and noted that for them ‘open by default’ meant feeling that their input could be easily heard, and that they could easily and effectively communicate with individual public servants on the data they publish or work on English Anglais Il y avait quelques discussions parmi les participants quant à la mise en œuvre d’un principe fondamental vraiment « ouvert par défaut » dans la manière qu’a le gouvernement de fonctionner. Un participant a suggéré que ce devrait être une course au sommet – par exemple, est-ce que le gouvernement du Canada ou le gouvernement de Montréal peuvent devenir « ouvert par défaut » en premier? Les RENSEIGNEMENTS PERSONNELS EFFACÉS ont indiqué qu’il n’y a pas de façon de mesurer le succès pour « ouvert par défaut » – c’est un principe important, mais il ne semble pas y avoir d’indicateur de résultat pour qu’un gouvernement puisse dire qu’il est vraiment « ouvert par défaut ». Les participants disent qu’ils veulent être eux-mêmes les juges de l’ouverture, et il a été noté que pour eux « ouvert par défaut » veut dire qu’ils sentent que leurs commentaires peuvent facilement être entendus, et qu’ils peuvent communiquer de façon efficace avec les fonctionnaires de façon individuelle sur les données qu’ils publient ou sur lesquelles ils travaillent.

Secondly, while individual Canadians have an inherent right of privacy, businesses and corporations do not. Any business or corporation wanting to do business with the Government of Canada or the Parliament of Canada should be prepared to accept openness and transparency in the expenditure of taxpayer dollars, or not bid on government contracts. Specific trade secrets may be protected, subject to the authority of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. Thirdly, Crown Corporations and other agencies, boards and commissions at the federal government level should be subject to the same openness and transparency as the Government of Canada proper, with the same limited exceptions as described. Finally, Canadian citizens, acting as private individuals, have the right to free and open access to public information. Professional journalists, registered lobbyists, agents of non-governmental organizations, and others acting on behalf of an association or group, may be asked to pay a nominal fee to defray the costs associated with information requests, provided such fee does not pose a deterrent to making such requests.

    i find it a struggle to know what my MP or MPP is actually doing - by doing i mean helping citizens put forward legislation and participating actively in doing so -- my my riding in Barrie, ON - i have a PC MP -i would like to see the calendars and diaries ie meetings and activities of all elected officials to be on line thru their office sites - how do i know t-hey are really too busy, or out of town - too often it seems like make-work or no-work activities are the rule and stop citizens from getting political action and help i would like mp's to do more than tell citizens to do the work for them - and not make it impossible to effect legislative improvements by telling citizens they have to do all the work via petition and organization of public outcry (which is what happened to me in Barrie)'

    with MPs who can ignore us, we have no control over our rights here - some examples of elected officials who ignore citizen outcry are the Alberta government's official response regarding a suffering animal in the edmonton zoo, which has roused pubic concern- that official responded to the public by saying 'their hands were tied' (not true), they ' could not interfere in this as it was between the zoo and the city of edmonton' (not true), with the caveat to readers to 'remember that the edmonton humane society may be able to do nothing as the city of edmonton is one of their biggest donors' --- this is a perfect example of what has become very common MP behavior and obstructs democracy.

    other - the public should have current and advance knowledge of all trade negotiations and pacts with time and means to participate.

    Canada was one of the first countries to include an Open Contracting commitment in its 2014 action plan. Public works has published a pilot data set using the Open Contracting Data Standard (OCDS) and Treasury is working on implementation of Proactive Disclosure policy but it would be great to move toward sustainable, timely, standardized open data about this important government function. It would be great if the next NAP could commit to full implementation of the OCDS (as Crown Commercial Service in the UK has done in the new UK NAP). The plan should also focus on user engagement and innovations in civic technology to ensure that this data can be used by Canadian stakeholders.

    If fully and properly implemented, this means that Canada would be one of the first countries in the world providing real time, joined-up open data on its public contracting.

    This opens up a world of possibilities both for better civic engagement, provision of better information on opportunities to smaller business, and better government analytics for saving money and boosting public integrity. To its great credit, the City of Montreal is also publishing open contracting data.

    It would be great if the NAP also committed to cocreation of advanced and shareable analytics to better meet user needs, especially with helping smaller businesses win more contracts, and share better impact stories.

Contract transparency allows citizens to monitor and provide oversight for the implementation of contracts between private firms and governments, particularly in the natural resource sector, but also in other sectors. When we speak of contract transparency, we are referring to the disclosure of the original contract in full. Provincial securities laws in Canada already require the disclosure of material contracts for mining companies, without significant concern for commercial sensitivity. In addition, the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, of which Canada is an important supporter, also includes requirements for contract disclosure.

    For a government to be truly "open" and transparent then it must allow all of its citizens to have access to all of the governments business. There should not be any secret or "in camera" sessions that citizens cannot view. That is how the government is kept in check.

    Canadians should be able to access government spending by department and down to the pencils and paper. That also should hold true for all members of the government. And along that line there should not be any "Petty Cash" funds as all financial transactions should be able to be scrutinized. When the government commits to a contract, that contract should be reviewable by the citizens of Canada for scrutiny to ensure that tax dollars are not being wasted or misused. In today's computerized world it is now possible to do all that was mentioned previously. The government should have its own "cloud" of data centers to allow easy access to the data. My idea is that if the government is truthful and has nothing to hide then there shouldn't be any reasons to not allow the citizens of Canada to have access to what the government is doing. And in regards to being open I would like to see the government publish (through the newspapers) the agreement between US Steel and the Conservative government that has allowed US Steel to not meet the requirements laid out that allowed them to purchase the old Stelco in Hamilton/Nanticoke. An open government would provide that document/agreement without a second thought otherwise it looks like the government has something to hide.

    Open Government means Federal Government Job Opportunities Truly Open to All

    Partners: Government of Canada (GoC), President of the Treasury Board of Canada (TBS), Minister of Sports and Persons with Disabilities, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour, President of the Public Service Commission of Canada (PSC), Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC), Civil Society

    The new Standard on Security Screening of the Government of Canada became effective on October 20, 2014. (http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/pol/doc-eng.aspx?id=28115) This Standard of the Government's new security screening policy includes, at a minimum, new mandatory credit checks and fingerprinting. The new Standard replaces the Personnel Security Standard, created in 1994.

    The 2016 Federal Budget has a cover entitled “Growing the middle class”. This implies that opportunities for well-remunerated jobs in both the public and private sector will be made available in the Canadian economy in the not too distant future, allowing no income or low income Canadians to access better jobs that allow them to join the middle class. However, the experiences of being denied employment and/or being terminated from employment due to credit checks/bad financial history in the private sector are now potentially becoming a practice in the public sector.

    The new Standard goes much further than previous policies and practices on security screening. While some employees who are in high security positions may have had to undergo security screening, this new policy applies to all employees. Employees, regardless of security status, will have to undergo fingerprinting and credit checks. This is unnecessary and goes too far. Credit checks can especially have a negative impact on members who are most vulnerable (e.g single moms, people with disabilities who have had to take long term sick leave). The policy doesn’t provide any details of what is considered “bad credit”. Another new aspect of the policy is to require employees to report any changes in financial status or even about their personal lives (e.g. divorce). Members who fall on hard times will have the added worry that their job will be in jeopardy.

    Throughout the working years (15-64 years of age) people with disabilities remain about twice as likely as those without disabilities to live with low income. People with disabilities are much less likely than people without to have jobs. Even where employed, people with disabilities are 1.5 times more likely than people without to live with low income. While persons/citizens with disabilities are already being subject to poverty, homelessness and social exclusion, the new Standard creates another barrier to social and professional insertion or reinsertion that is not consistent with the published statement that the “Public Service of Canada is committed to developing inclusive, barrier-free selection processes and work environments.”

    No Canadian citizen should, without overwhelming just cause, have to bear the burden of filing a complaint and going through a judicial or quasi-judicial process with the Security Intelligence Review Committee (SIRC) or file a human rights complaint under the Canadian Human Rights Act.

    The new Standard violates the requirements of the Privacy Act and the protections for individual privacy protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. (http://psacunion.ca/psac-challenge-new-public-service-security) It can hinder the full participation of all Canadians citizens, and Canadians with Disabilities, to life in society and the benefits of participating in the creation, maintenance and enjoyment of Canada's iconic “Peace, Order and Good Government”.

    The partners listed at the top of this idea proposal should create a working group to address this issue in a thorough and dedicated manner. Perhaps a review and amendments to the Standard on Security Screening, the review and change in format of Treasury Board Secretariat Personnel Screening, Consent and Authorization Form (TBS/SCT 330-23), or a combination of these two processes along with new legislative dispositions included in the long-awaited, and still non-existent, Canadians with Disabilities Act. There are tangible measures that need to be taken to ensure the financial perenity and resiliency of Canadians with Disabilities - and all Canadians for that matter- so that progress on this issue is made real with an enhanced Open Government that is transparent and accountable to all segments of the Canadian population.

    1120   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Open Government means Federal… Hi Rick, Thanks for your comment. Quote from para 4 regarding working years (15-64 years of age) is information that was copy pasted from Public Sector Alliance of Canada website; not my own words or draft. It probably follows the typical labor market statistics about when people decide to retire and legislation regarding when OAS (Old Age Security) kicks in for those wishing to receive it, with the assumption that people will willingly retire at or around that age. I have read Dan Lyon's post regarding age discrimination in the tech/start-up sector and could not agree more that age discrimination should have no place in the labor market, regardless of sector, and that people should have the choice to decide in which sector they wish to work, and how long they wish to remain active engaged employees in any given workplace. Unfortunately, age discrimination is a strong part of insurance industry practices, government policy for programs and benefits delivery, public and private sector corporate cultures, etc. The idea I submitted covers the topic of financial discrimination becoming a very real threat in the public sector. As far as I know, there is no law or legislation with respect to financial discrimination. Getting a job in the government should not have to depend on whether you are a millionaire, made $1 dollar or $100,000 dollars in income in the previous year, or are bankrupt today or in the past. Financial discrimination is common place in the private sector (especially financial services sector) where banks want your T4's from previous years before they hire you, along with full credit checks and financial field investigations, some things that the new Standard on Security Screening for the Government of Canada is allowing the Government to increasingly implement or choose to apply in unclear, unprecise and arbitrary manners.

    Environment Canada and Industry are currently behind schedule on this commitment: "Maximize access to federally funded scientific research to encourage greater collaboration and engagement with the scientific community, the private sector, and the public". This needs to be a priority. Canada does not currently have a culture of open access to government science. There is a need for considerable discussion and preparation for change. The June 2016 consultation should be heavily promoted and deadlines extended if necessary to get it right.

    1125   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Open science Suggestions for specific deliverables: 1. Don't reinvent the wheel - extend the tri-agency open access policy on publications to government scientists and contractors (summer 2016): http://www.science.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=F6765465-1 2. Improve on the tri-agency policy by requiring that a copy of all peer-reviewed publications be made openly accessible through a Canadian-based open access archive, even if works are published in open access journals. Rationale: (speaking as a university researcher focusing on the economics of transition to open access): it is not wise to rely on journals to provide ongoing access of any kind, never mind open access in perpetuity. Journals start, stop, merge, split, change hands and/or approaches all the time. For example, this year I found that 27 journals active on the website of the world's largest and possibly most commercial successful open access publishers, Hindawi, are no longer there this year. If Canadian researchers have published in these journals, it is not clear how anyone would access this content. 3. Research data should be covered under the open government directive with a default of open. To facilitate the effectiveness of research funded by Canadians, government scientists (and contractors) should be instructed to actively cooperate with, and advocate for, international data-sharing initiatives, aligned with Canadian priorities. I think it is timely to commit to sharing of environmental data globally to track compliance with goals set out in Paris last year and to accelerate change towards a clean energy economy. The mapping of the human genome in 13 years showed us what we can do when we work together. 4. Researchers funded by the government should be actively engaged with the public at all phases of the research. Every government scientist or group of scientists should be encouraged to adopt their own approach to open research such as open notebook science, research blogs, creating educational videos for YouTube, twitter accounts, citizen science projects. Specific deliverables: a) open communication and engagement directive for government scientists - suggested timeline fall 2016; b) 1 - 3 citizen science pilot projects - suggested timeline 2017-2018.

    Bonjour,

    Pour améliorer la transparence du gouvernement du Canada, les problèmes suivants doivent être corrigés :

    1. La liste en ligne des « institutions fédérales canadiennes et sociétés pertinentes dans lesquelles le Canada détient des intérêts » n’est pas à jour, complète ni bien structurée.
    2. Plusieurs organisations fédérales ne mettent pas à jour leur chapitre Info Source comme elles sont tenues de le faire selon les directives du Secrétariat du Conseil du Trésor.
    3. Certaines organisations ne datent pas leur chapitre Info Source – les chapitres devraient tous être datés pour que les Canadiens puissent s’assurer que l’information de base sur l’organisation est à jour.
    4. Plusieurs coordonnateurs de l’accès à l’information n’accusent pas réception des courriels qui leur sont envoyés.
    5. Il existe un grand problème d’accessibilité à l’information sur les sites Web des organisations gouvernementales en raison des formats de diffusion de l’information. Par exemple, un rapport, au lieu d’être accessible facilement en PDF, peut être divisé sur plusieurs pages Web en HTML : il est alors impossible de télécharger le rapport ou d’en voir la vue d’ensemble, il faut le constituer soi-même par copier-coller.
    6. Tous les sites Web ne mettent pas à la disposition du public une adresse courriel pour informer l'institution de problèmes sur ses pages Web. (Les informations de contact disponibles sont souvent consacrées à d'autres questions).
    7. Les tableaux supplémentaires des rapports sur les plans et priorités (RPP) ne sont pas tous rendus disponibles en PDF par les institutions fédérales.
    8. Certaines institutions fédérales rendent compte des langues officielles dans leurs RPP, d’autres non. La reddition de compte concernant les langues officielles dans les RPP devrait être standardisée.
    9. Les RPP de certaines institutions contiennent des informations tellement vagues qu’il est impossible de connaître les projets importants des institutions.
    10. Le concept d’un « seul site Web » pour héberger le contenu de l'ensemble des institutions fédérales.

    Je suis à votre disposition si vous avez besoin de clarifications.

    Bien cordialement,

    To improve the transparency of the Government of Canada, the following problems must be corrected:

    1. The online list of "Canadian Federal institutions and relevant companies in which the interests of Canada" is not up to date, complete nor well structured.
    2. Several federal organizations do not update their Info Source chapter as they are required to do as directed by the Treasury Board Secretariat.
    3. Some organizations do not date their Info Source Chapter - Chapters should all be dated so that Canadians can ensure that basic information on the organization is up to date.
    4. Several coordinators of access to information does not acknowledge receipt of emails sent to them.
    5. There is a big problem of accessibility to information on websites of government organizations because of information dissemination formats. For example, a report, instead of being easily available in PDF, may be divided across multiple Web pages in HTML: it is impossible to download the report or to see the overview, it should be self -even by copying and pasting.
    6. All websites do not make publicly available an email address to inform the institution of issues on its web pages. (Available contact information is often spent on other issues).
    7. Additional tables Reports on Plans and Priorities (RPPs) are all made available in PDF by federal institutions.
    8. Some federal institutions report of the official languages ​​in their RPP, others not. The accountability regarding official languages ​​in the RPPs should be standardized.
    9. RPP some institutions contain information so vague that it is impossible to know the important projects of the institutions.
    10. The concept of a "single Web site" to house the contents of all federal institutions.

    It is time for Canada Post to release Postal Codes as open data sets under the Open Government Licence. Other jurisdictions have come to learn that access to Postal Code data is essential in creating a more open government.

    For example, the UK, Norway, Japan, the U.S., and Rwanda all release their geocoded Postal Codes.

    http://index.okfn.org/dataset/postcodes/

    Meanwhile, Canada ranks 40th in the World on this issue. I believe this should be a priority for the next Open Government Action Plan.

    1167   Idea comment Commentaire d’idée Postal Codes Great idea, The Postal Code Database is the most voted dataset on Canada's Suggested Datasets page: http://open.canada.ca/en/suggested-datasets There is a good discussion there on users' needs. I would also like to draw attention to a petition that was started very recently: https://www.change.org/p/canada-post-president-deepak-chopra-canada-post... I don't anticipate Canada Post will voluntarily or proactively publish this data, considering it is defending the copyright that it claims in this data: http://geocoder.ca/?sued=1 Canada Post also has no obligation to the Treasury Board Secretariat. However, according to the Canada Post Corporations Act, Canada Post does have an obligation to the Minister responsible for Canada Post Corporation, the Honourable Judy M. Foote: "the Corporation shall comply with such directives as the Minister may give to it." To move the conversation forward, and in consideration of Canada Post's financial interests in not releasing this data, I would recommend that the Minister request a report from Canada Post estimating the revenue loss from releasing this data. This report should be made public. Thus informed, the Minister and the public can evaluate whether the social and economic benefits of releasing this data exceed the revenue losses. In the UK, Nigel Shadbolt describes some social and economic benefits: https://theodi.org/blog/cornerstone-open-data-postcode-address-file I recommend following the links from the post, in particular the submission from the Open Data User Group describing international experiences: https://data.gov.uk/library/open-data-user-group-postcode-ownership-inte... To be specific about what data to release, I recommend that Canada Post release its Postal Code Address Data (PCAD). In 2012, Canada Post sent me a quote of $50,600 per year for commercial use of this data. This price tag suppresses use of this data for social and economic benefit.

    1173   email Courriel Public data as "infrastructure"

    I would like to make a couple of suggestions.

    First, to raise awareness for and make Open Data a greater priority, might the Federal Government deem public data as a form of infrastructure?

    Second, many of the most valuable public datasets are under the control of the provinces and municipalities. I would suggest that the Federal Government consider putting in place an incentive to encourage provinces and municipalities to surface datasets under their control.

    1186   Email Courriel "Question from Google hangout Question 1"

    Here is my question for the Honorable Scott Brison:

    QUESTION 1

    In the Speaking notes for the Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board to the Canadian Open Dialogue Forum 2016 addressed the recently made public federal budget.

    And just last week in our budget, we reinforced our commitment to open and transparent government with specific investments, including:

    1. Doubling existing resources for open government initiatives:
      • $11.5 million over five years for Treasury Board Secretariat’s open government activities; and
      • $12.9 million over five years to help the Treasury Board Secretariat enhance Canadians’ access to government information, including their own personal information.
    2. There’s also $17.8 million over five years to improve our Service Strategy.

    The key information is this: $11.5 million for open government activities...I really wonder where all this money will go??? Is it to hire more government employees to work on open government projects or to establish “program funding” or “channels for funding” for private citizens to engage in open government activities, such as channelling money to the The Canadian Open Government Civil Society Network for those who join their network as a non-profit corporation or social innovation business???

    1187   Contact Us Contactez-nous Rights and Over-the-Air (OTA) Television

    As an adjunct to my previous email, it occurred to me that a person who owns his own home has more fundamental rights than a person who owns his own condo. A homeowner can install or have installed for him an outdoor TV antenna to access those free over-the-air television signals that have existed in Canada since 1952 and are the first form of television in this country. The condo owner does not enjoy this privilege however so does that make him a second class citizen? This would apply to apartment building residents as well which means these two groups of people in particular are being "denied" their fundamental right to "freedom of choice". A person can choose their gas station, grocery store, drug store,bank,barber,hair salon etc. but when it comes to television services, most people have their hands tied. Pay TV came about decades ago offering more TV channels than what were available with an antenna at the time. In 2011 over-the-air broadcast television went digital and with that came sub-channels, more free TV channels available with an antenna. In Palo Alto California the population of 66,624 people have access to 139 "free" OTA TV channels. Pay TV not required which means money normally spent or wasted depending on your point of view on Pay TV can go towards the essentials of life.This technology is being held up and with TV networks aside from the CBC owned and operated by Pay TV, its easy to see why.

    1188   email Courriel Some overall and content suggestions

    Further to my blog post of today (Trudeau government asks for ideas on open government), some initial suggestions:

    General:

    • Find ways to tackle and enforce the hardest issue of all: changing the culture and enforcing a default obligation of openness; and,
    • Provide information and data in electronic formats that allow manipulation for analytical purposes. The previous government only released public opinion research data tables in pdf format, formatted to ensure that it was impossible to copy and paste. Under the current government, PCO was unable (or unwilling) to export its database of GiC appointments in spreadsheet format, requiring me to recreate this already public information (about a week’s worth of work). Data should be regularly available in spreadsheet format, or easily copiable from the web (StatsCan and the IRCC datasets on open data are good examples). I did have good experience from TBS recently when I asked for EE data on ADMs, where officials responded to my request and engaged in discussion on what was doable.

    Particular suggestions for additional datasets, to be issued on a regular frequency and in a timely fashion (no later than 3 months after the period in question):

    • Citizenship (annual):
    • in addition to top 10 countries of birth (consider top 25), have complete table or one mapped to IRCC operational regions (top 10 only covers about 50 percent of new citizens);
    • naturalization rate, calculated based upon 6 years of permanent residency, broken down country of birth, mapped to IRCC operational regions;
    • naturalization rate, calculated based upon 6 years of permanent residency, broken down by immigration category, gender and province;
    • citizenship test pass rates (language and knowledge), by country of birth mapped to IRC operational regions;
    • number of rejected and incomplete applications.
    • Passports: (annual)
    • top 25 countries of birth (all)
    • top 25 countries of birth (foreign-born)
    • number of passports issued abroad mapped to IRC operational regions (to give sense of Canadian expatriates)
    • breakdown by country of birth of passports issued abroad
    • GiC Appointments (annual):
    • regular employment equity type reporting for all GiC appointments given Government’s commitment to greater diversity and inclusion.
