Thank you for all of the comments and ideas you’ve provided towards Canada’s Action Plan on Open Government 2.0. These have come from in-person and online consultations, emails, and meetings. And there are many of them—the count is over 600. Summary reports on the feedback we’ve received are now posted on the What We Heard page.
Most importantly, every idea, comment, and suggestion—whether it’s from a civil society representative, a government employee, an open government advocate, or a member of the public—has been passed to the appropriate department.
Your contributions not only helped shape our Action Plan, but also the culture change you want to see for Canada. You’re making Open Government happen.
The release of the draft Action Plan 2.0 represents our proposed commitments to Open Government for the next two years, and we invite you to review it. This doesn’t rule out the possibility of pursuing other ideas, either for this cycle or for a future iteration of the Action Plan. A lot can happen in two years and we’re always keeping an eye on the long-term possibilities for Open Government.
It has been an incredibly productive summer talking to Canadians—it’s fantastic to see how many people have shared their expertise and perspectives with us so far. We are excited about the future of Open Government, and we are genuinely enthused about what we’ve heard and have been able to include in this draft. Thank you, again. We look forward to continued collaboration on Open Government in Canada.
