How can Open Government be better government?

How can Open Government be better government?

Policy Ignite partnered with the Open Government Secretariat (OGS) at the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) to identify opportunities for applying Open Government principles to improve federal policies, programs and services.
Open Government is a global movement with implications across government policy and public administration around the world. In Canada, the goals of Open Government include:
• Fueling innovation: enabling new policies or services and improving quality of services in the private or public sector.
• Improving transparency and accountability: enhancing citizen knowledge on governance or consumer empowerment.
• Enhancing efficiency: reducing the cost of existing government and private services.
• Enhancing engagement: increasing trust in government or the private sector through greater participation and collaboration.
