Open Government

Open government is about the relationship between you and your public servants. It’s about governing with people rather than at people. It’s about building trust and accountability between citizens, elected officials and municipal administration. It’s about modernizing our services with our citizens and businesses in mind.

And it’s a long game. A game best played together.

  • Municipal Innovation Exchange (MIX): Procurement can be a tool for innovation, as shown by the ongoing work of the MaRS’ Procurement by Co-Design health innovation program and the City of Guelph’s Civic Accelerator
  • Have your say: We believe the best, most representative public policy is developed with input from the community
