Open by Default Pilot

The Open by Default pilot is your backstage pass to the work of four government departments: Canadian Heritage, Environment and Climate Change Canada, Natural Resources Canada and Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat. The goal is to give you a snapshot of Government of Canada documents as they’re being created. The Government of Canada works for Canadians, so we believe you should know what we’re doing behind-the-scenes.
