Government of Canada’s Open by Default pilot - Transcript
The Government of Canada is changing how it interacts with the public.
With several levels of approvals, sharing information with the public has been a challenging process, creating barriers when developing new policies, programs, and services.
How then, can the Government of Canada deliver on its commitment to be open and transparent?
Right now we’re testing an Open by Default pilot that gives the public a behind-the-scenes look at the federal government’s work as its being created.
With the push of a button, public servants will be able to share working documents on open.canada.ca, facilitating co-development of policies, civic engagement, and more impactful science.
Imagine, a government that:
- works in the open
- shares information as it is created
- increasingly collaborates with the public
That, is Open by Default.
