In an effort to become more open and transparent, the government is proactively working to provide citizens with access to the information that matters most to them – no closed doors or hidden agendas. It’s felt that this candid disclosure will create opportunities for citizens to participate in government and collaborate on decisions being made.
This type of information sharing is governed by legislation and policy that makes provision for the release of public information. These releases have been completed on a case-by-case basis – until now. Open Information provides access to the routine release of public information that has been most commonly requested (i.e. travel expenses for Ministers and Deputy Ministers). Additionally, individual requests for specific government information that are processed will also be released for general public viewing on this site.
This service will not only improve awareness, understanding and dialogue; it will create efficiencies that modernize and open up government. We invite you to take a look and get to know your government better – you may like what you find.
