The Government of Canada is renewing its approach to open and transparent government. An open consultation was held to develop a new vision for open government, as well as Canada's Third Biennial Plan to the Open Government Partnership (2016-18). This involved Canadians and stakeholders in civil society, business, academia, and other sectors. Over the course of three months, through online and in-person channels, the open consultation invited numerous ideas and comments to help shape the Government of Canada's commitments on open government, which are now reflected in the Third Biennial Plan.
