About Open Government

Open government means the government is transparent with information and accountable for decisions. It also means people are involved in making decisions. To do this, the government works with people, communities, businesses, and civil society.

Open government is based on the principles of transparency, accountability and public participation. Transparency means sharing the government’s data and information and making it easier for people to access them. Accountability means holding government responsible for their actions and decisions. Public participation means involving people in decisions about government policies and programs.

The Government of Canada is committed to being open.

  • The descriptions and questions below are part of the questionnaire to collect ideas from the public on commitments to include in Canada's 2025–2029 NAP.  

    There are two parts to this questionnaire:   

    Part 1: collects your ideas for actions the Government of Canada could consider taking. Participants are free to decline to answer any individual question in Part 1.

    Part 2: collects demographics information. It helps us see who is taking part in this activity and ensures that we are involving diverse groups of people. 

    Once you submit the questionnaire, you can vote on ideas from other participants. Go to the Idea Board section and select the “Like” button to show support. This helps us prioritize ideas. We will use them to draft Canada’s 2025–2029 NAP later this year.  

    Thank you for your input in helping us advance open government in Canada!
