Our crowdfunding initiative for the Toronto version of MyCityHall.ca is underway! This is your opportunity to support open and transparent local government in Toronto; even $1 of support (and especially sharing the project with your friends and network) gets us closer to launching MyCityHall.ca.
Tomorrow is International Open Data Day! We are co-hosting the Montreal event with Quebec Ouvert at the SAT and our communications manager, Ellie Marshall, will be at the Toronto event at the Centre for Social Innovation Annex.
SXSW is only two weeks away! If you’re lucky enough to attend this music, film and interactive festival be sure to find our executive director, James McKinney, and Participatory Politics’ David Moore for a preview of the next version of OpenGovernment.org from March 8th to March 12th.
