About Us

Why Transparent Canada?

This website is an individual effort that try to aggregate, analyse, and present useful data to Canadians. The idea comes out of the fundamental right of every person to have access to this information. Information is a key; let's use it for a better future.

Being a software developer is a privilege. As a way to give back, we need to use our knowledge to push for a better society. It is our duty to eliminate any technical difficulties that sit as an obstacle between people and information. Decisions that rely on facts usually yield to better outcomes. Let's set the data free !
