Open Government Week – cause for celebration

Transcript - Open Government Week

I’m Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board of Canada.

The Government of Canada believes that when more Canadians are involved in helping shape our decisions, we make better choices for all Canadians. Open government is good government.

That’s why we’re a proud member of the international Open Government Partnership.

And Canada is eager to take on a lead role co-chairing this global movement over the next year.

Our goal is to help more citizens participate, to include more voices in this partnership and to make sure people understand how open government affects their day-to-day lives.

Expectations are high for Canada in this leadership role – as they should be.

So please join us for Open Government Week by attending one of the many events taking place.

For more information about Open Government, visit open-dot-canada-dot-ca, or sign up for our email newsletter.

I invite all Canadians to help us make governments more open, accountable and responsive. Thank you.
