About open government

Open government aims to:

  • Promote increased transparency, accountability and participation
  • Harness new technologies to strengthen governance

Want to know more about open government?

  • At the global level, open government efforts are coordinated by Open Government Partnership (OGP).
  • OGP members organize their work through Action Plans on open government. You can learn more about what OGP members are doing on the OGP website.
  • Another important way for governments around the world to support open government is through portals. These portals aim to provide citizens with access to resources like open data, open information, and open dialogue.  In Canada, for example, one of our most important tools for open government is our website, open.canada.ca.
