Open Government Week 2022

Many countries around the world will be celebrating Open Government Week May 16-20, 2022 and there are many activities planned here in Canada:

"Open Gov Week is a global call to action to transform the way governments respond to their citizens’ needs. It is a chance to connect with leaders at all levels to share ideas, discuss solutions, and inspire open government reform everywhere."

"This year, Open Gov Week is about the doers, thinkers, creators and reformers working tirelessly to open government and renew democracy. We encourage the Open Government community to come together to share ideas, discuss solutions, and honour the innovators transforming government work around the world."

"Open Gov Week is a community-led initiative. We hope to see groups across Canada organize events: public town halls, open houses for government organizations, presentations, open mics, meetups, hackathons, open data book clubs, design jams – and anything else you can think of that connects citizens with government and civic life."

Here is a list of events in Canada (descriptions on the Open Government Week website):

  • The Many Forms of OG Champions, May 16
