The MSF's mandate is to provide input and advice on the Government of Canada’s commitments to open government, identify new areas of focus, and build the open government community in Canada.

The Federal Government is a member of the International Open Government Partnership<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.opengovpartnership.org%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cjtreviranus%40ocadu.ca%7Cff055a54c0784c15465508d90e6f2b9c%7C06e469d12d2a468fae9b7df0968eb6d7%7C0%7C0%7C637556693980527610%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=Mlg%2FbFF5c2ecKJm4rxda6lAn%2BYFTJGZBFSNHxeoMCzs%3D&reserved=0> (OGP), a transnational organization of governments committed to the principles of open government, such as transparency, inclusion, openness, etc. Canada, as a member of the OGP, must write a 2 year National Action Plan detailing its commitments. Canada has produced four action plans to date, the latest for 2018-2020<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fopen.canada.ca%2Fen%2Fcontent%2Fcanadas-2018-2020-national-action-plan-open-government&data=04%7C01%7Cjtreviranus%40ocadu.ca%7Cff055a54c0784c15465508d90e6f2b9c%7C06e469d12d2a468fae9b7df0968eb6d7%7C0%7C0%7C637556693980527610%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=zgYldItoCe27qPFWt5XzGmwxHtkkaNJ0O00WeONaBtE%3D&reserved=0>.

The MSF is working with the Treasury Board Secretariat of Canada Secretariat (TBSC), the responsible government office on this file, to create Canada's 5th National Action Plan by pinpointing issues and commitments on 5 key areas as follows:

  1.  Fiscal, Financial and Corporate Transparency
  2.  Climate Change and Sustainable Growth
  3.  Combatting Disinformation and Safeguarding Fair Elections
  4.  Justice
  5.  Open Data for Results (Focus on Disability)

We hope to address the current data deficit on disability in Canada and this is why we are reaching out to you to help government with an Open Data for Results commitment on disability.
We would like to invite you as civil society experts about disability to help us draft a robust community driven commitment. Your work nationally, locally, and individually as organization and experts has been recognized and Canadians can benefit from your knowledge.
You need not be data nor open government expert to join us, but your experience and expertise as subject matter specialists and/or as people of lived experiences is the insight we are looking to gain from you.

  *   Are you interested in knowing more? YES / NO
  *   Are you interested in meeting with Catherine and Tracey for an orientation meeting in the next two weeks? YES / NO

Please let us know as soon as you can, as COVID has already delayed this process. Once we hear from you, we will schedule an orientation meeting with just us an you next week.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,

Tracey<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fdatalibre.ca%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cjtreviranus%40ocadu.ca%7Cff055a54c0784c15465508d90e6f2b9c%7C06e469d12d2a468fae9b7df0968eb6d7%7C0%7C0%7C637556693980537595%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=FEn%2Fy3iYC0xA%2FBudsDLh5ZYDzcKIIHNHigYJzOncrRk%3D&reserved=0> & Catherine<https://can01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.catherine-roy.net%2F&data=04%7C01%7Cjtreviranus%40ocadu.ca%7Cff055a54c0784c15465508d90e6f2b9c%7C06e469d12d2a468fae9b7df0968eb6d7%7C0%7C0%7C637556693980537595%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=GtbdC3mjA0FKnqtOKj0gNmFqOPbne06GTwM16fGwfLE%3D&reserved=0>
