Canada to include mandatory reporting in OGP Action Plan 2.0

On October 20th, the Government of Canada concludes consultations on its second national action plan for the Open Government Partnership. The current draft includes a commitment to mandatory payment reporting. While great in itself, the commitment needs to be strenghtened! The government must take this opportunity to commit to ensure that the data disclosed by companies is made available in a standard open data format, that complies with the G8 Open Data Charter, and that the data is stored in a central repository. Click here to see our changes to the current draft action plan.

Make your voice heard by visiting the government's website and posting a comment about the current draft action plan.
