Join the IPC’s Transparency Challenge!

Does your organization have an innovative open data or open government project or program that advances public sector transparency in Ontario?

On Right to Know Day, September 28, 2022, in an effort to increase awareness and adoption of best practices in transparency, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario (IPC) has issued a Transparency Challenge to Ontario’s public institutions. Read our announcement.

Transparency is essential to democracy. It helps people understand government decision-making and the policies and issues that matter to them. Institutions need to respond to access requests, but they should also be proactive in disclosing non-identifiable information that is important for the public to know and be able to use to improve their day to day lives.

Using our online form, we invite you to show and tell us about how your transparency project or program is modern and innovative, improves government transparency in a creative way, and has a concrete and positive impact for Ontarians.

Your project or program may be featured in our Transparency Showcase.

Submissions must be received before January 13, 2023.
