Why Transparent Canada?
Promoting openness and transparency in the Canadian society by transforming the challenging, unsystematic, disorganized, difficult to reach public records into trivial and obstacle-free information gateway for every Canadian and presenting them in a well-organized and consumable format.
Why Freedom of Information?
Freedom of information and the right-to-know by every Canadian is fundamental for the advancement of our society.
Why Equality in Accessing Information?
Open data and unlimited access to electronic public records promotes equal and unbiased treatment of individuals and groups under Canadian laws and encourages citizens to protect their rights.
Why Transparency in Publishing Data?
Government openness and transparency, at all levels, acts as a safeguard against public-office power abuses and acts as anti-corruption tool in the government decision-making process.
Who are We?
I started this app in 2015 to better equip Canadians when they need to make a decision based on data, and make it easy for them to do so. If you need to connect with me, the info is found in the Contact Us page. We are based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
How often do we publish new data?
Our goal is to publish a new dataset per week. This is mostly an individual effort, so time investment can be challenging.
Can I suggest a new dataset to be added to this website?
For sure, and you are encouraged to do so. Please check the contact us page for info about how you can connect with us.
Can I support your work?
Support for this work, of any kind, is welcomed. Please contact us for more details.
