Canada Design Report 2018-2020 – For Public Comment

In 2020, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the design report for Canada’s fourth action plan. The report covers the action plan development process and the design of commitments.

In Canada, the IRM researcher Daniel Paré’ findings are summarized below:

Canada’s fourth action plan is the country’s first plan to be developed in partnership with a multi- stakeholder forum (MSF). Structured under the pillars of inclusion, participation and impact, it expands upon commitments from previous action plans and includes a strong focus on advancing gender equality. In moving forward, priority should be given to earmarking resources for implementing OGP commitments and for ensuring that the issues tackled resonate better with priorities identified by stakeholders. Future plans could consider adopting a results- or performance-based approach to plan design and implementation.

And in French:

Le quatrième plan d’action du Canada est le premier du pays à être élaboré en partenariat avec un forum multipartite (FMP). Structuré sous les piliers de l’inclusion, de la participation et de l’impact, il développe les engagements des plans d’action précédents et met l’accent sur la promotion de l’égalité entre les genres. À l’avenir, la priorité devrait être accordée à l’affectation de ressources pour la mise en œuvre des engagements du PGO et pour faire en sorte que les questions abordées correspondent mieux aux priorités identifiées par les parties prenantes. Les plans futurs pourraient envisager d’adopter une approche axée sur les résultats ou la performance pour la conception et la mise en œuvre des plans.

The report is available in English and French. The public is invited to review and comment on this report from 25 February until 10 March 2020. Comments can be submitted here, below, or by email to
