CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Open Government is about making government more accessible to everyone. This means giving greater access to government data and information to the Canadian public and the business community. Open Government plays a critical role in ensuring that people in Canada are served by their governments in ways that are responsive, efficient and fair. It connects people to the governments who serve them, and helps make policies and services more people-centred.
