Participate in the development of Canada’s 2025–2029 National Action Plan on Open Government !

The Government of Canada has been a member of the international Open Government Partnership (OGP) since 2012. The OGP brings together national and sub-national governments from around the world who are committed to advancing transparent, participatory, inclusive and accountable governance. To remain a member of the OGP, the Government of Canada must work with civil society and the public to develop and carry out a National Action Plan on Open Government every two to four years.

As the plan is carried out, a tracker is used to make sure the government is following through on its commitments
