Open Government: Success Stories and Lessons Learned


Canada is a global leader in the open government movement. But we didn't get here without hitting a few bumps in the road!

The Canada School of Public Service's Digital Academy is partnering with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat's Open Government team to bring together top experts to discuss:

  • what does open government really mean?
  • Canada's successes with open government
  • the challenges of open government

Hear how government institutions have overcome obstacles on the road to success, and discover best practices that could benefit your workplace. This is your opportunity to learn about the innovations and advancements happening across government.
