Canada End-Term Report 2016-2018

In 2019 the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for Canada’s third action plan. The report covers the full action plan implementation period of 1 July 2016 through 30 June 2018.

In Canada, the IRM researcher Michael Karanicolas’ findings are summarized below:

“Canada made important advancements during implementation of this action plan, completing most of its commitments and making substantial progress on all commitments. However, several important milestones were left incomplete, and civil society stakeholders engaged in the Open Government Partnership criticised a broader lack of ambition. Moving forward, the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat should embrace a robust co-creation model for future action plans.”

And in French:

“Le Canada a observé des progrès considérables au cours de ce plan d’action, complétant la plupart de ses engagements et réalisant des progrès substantiels au niveau de tous les engagements. Cependant, plusieurs jalons importants sont demeurés incomplets et les acteurs de la société civile engagés dans le PGO ont critiqué le manque d’ambition plus général. À l’avenir, le Secrétariat du Conseil du Trésor devrait adopter un modèle de co-création solide pour les plans d’action futurs.”

The report is available in English and French. The two-week public comment period closed Thursday 14 February 2019. Comments can be viewed below
