A group of academic, business and community leaders will form an Open Government Engagement Team, which will be chaired by Don Lenihan. They will gather feedback from people across the province and report back to the government in spring, 2014.
The focus will be on three areas: open dialogue, so it is easier for people to connect and interact with government through new tools and technologies; open data, so people can access data to solve everyday problems and come up with new ideas; open information, which means creating even more transparency by sharing more information.
The Open Government initiative is part of the government's vision for One Ontario, where we will work together to build a successful, compassionate and united province where everyone has the opportunity to connect, contribute and enjoy a high quality of life.
Our Open Government initiative will help create the transparent, accessible government the people of Ontario deserve. This is part of our vision for One Ontario, where every voice counts.
Putting the people of Ontario first and serving them better is our priority, and our initiative will make sure we’re using new ways to hear every voice and provide access to data and information when and where people want it.
