Right to access • COMMON DEFINITIONS & FORMATS: government data! “Consistency” permits comparability and thus• INTEROPERABILITY: Foster diverse systems, helps informs issues. “Commonality” embraces communities of practice, and organizations to definitional as well as technical considerations. work together! • BI-LATERAL OPENNESS: Governments in Canada• CIVIC ENGAGEMENT FOR ALL!: are getting better at OUTBOUND data (releasing Representation for all population groups data), but are not equipped to deal with regardless of specialty, background or INBOUND (value-added data that communities disability. want to share back).• RELEVANT DATA PLEASE!: Data must be • THE NEW CURRENCY: Creative collaboratives to relevant for ALL COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE share “data” instead of money, but how do we and include ALL TYPES OF DATA (e.g., service do that under current funding and fiscal availability, program use, government resourcing? transparency & accountability).
