Getting ready for proactive publication: Crown Corporations
What is Proactive Publication?
The Government of Canada is committed to raising the bar for openness and transparency and is taking steps to become "open by default," by sharing government data and information with Canadians.
To accomplish this, Bill C-58 would add a new part to the Access to Information Act that requires institutions to proactively publish specific information known to be of interest to the public, and which provides greater transparency and accountability for the use of public funds. More specifically, the proposed amendments to the Access to Information Act would put into law proactive disclosure practices previously only covered by federal policy, and introduce important new disclosure requirements that would apply the Access to Information Act to a wider range of organizations.
