The City’s Open Government Committee conducted surveys to learn more about the views residents of the City, City staff and the academic sector have on Open Government. The feedback will help improve the City’s government transparency and accountability, enable public participation, and access to information and services.
In 2016, the Open Government Committee published the Open Government Progress Report. It demonstrates the City’s continuing pledge to “opening up government.” The report reflects what the City heard from staff and the public and explores Open Government initiatives and future endeavours.
In 2015, the City of Toronto and Ryerson University co-hosted sixty participants representing academia, civil society and City senior management to discuss “what does it mean to be an open government?” and “what can Toronto do to be a more open city?” This summary report highlights some of the vibrant ideas and discussions from the “Open Government in OpenSpaces” event.
