Open Government Partnership Workshop

The government of Ontario is inviting stakeholders in the Open Government movement from the public and civil society to the Implementation Phase of the Open Government Partnership Commitments. These are:

  • Strengthen Ontario’s commitment to making government data open by default by adopting the International Open Data Charter.
  • Increase opportunities for young people across Ontario to share ideas for government programs and services by developing a digital engagement tool
  • Create an open government training program for staff across the Ontario Public Service to help government continue to find new ways to boost openness and transparency

The purpose of the event, which is in a workshop format, is to engage in dialogue on Ontario’s Open Government Partnership commitments and to contribute to a pan-Canadian conversation on Open Dialogue and Open Data.

The workshop will also be a space to set the stage for the co-creation of our deliverables.

The first workshop took place on February 21, 2017 from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm in the Ontario Trade & Investment Centre at 250 Yonge Street. It was attended by about 30 participants from civil society, business, academia, and government.
