Creating Canada’s 2020-22 National Action Plan on Open Government

The health and safety of all Canadians is important to us. As such, we’re postponing our consultations until further notice. To stay up to date on Open Government activities, sign up for our newsletter. For more information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19), visit

Open Government plays a critical role in ensuring citizens are served by their governments in ways that are responsive, efficient and fair. It connects people to the governments who serve them, and helps make policies and services more citizen-centred. Building on the foundation of our first four plans, we aim to continue promoting openness, transparency, and accountability in the Government of Canada.

This is your chance to help shape the future of open government in Canada! From March 2 to May 1, 2020, we’re connecting with Canadians online and across the country. Our goal is to hear what Canadians coast to coast to coast want to see in our next plan. Tell us your ideas, experiences, insights and stories on what open government means to you; what could be improved and what direction you think open government needs to go.

How your ideas shape the plan

We review every comment, idea and suggestion received online or at engagement events. Your input will become the basis for conversations throughout the Government of Canada to create draft commitments for the plan. We will then come back for a second round of consultations to see if we heard you right!
