On its website the City of Ottawa describes its open data initiative as follows: “As part of the City of Ottawa’s commitment to improving citizen engagement and enhancing transparency and accountability to its residents, the City is joining other government organizations within Canada and around the world by providing public access to its data.

“The Open Data Ottawa site is a first step in creating a foundation that encourages digital innovation, improved service delivery, stimulation of economic growth, and a better understanding of our city. Entrepreneurs, academics, policy-makers, and community organizations are just a few of the groups that will benefit from the available information.”

Mark Faul will discuss this initiative and the results to-date. He will be joined by Angelina Munaretto, who will add her insights and perspective to the discussion based on her experience at Library and Archives Canada.
