Duración del proyecto: en curso

Fuente de financiamiento: Gobierno Regional

Edmonton’s Open City Initiative was implemented in lieu with the city’s wish to become a city which is more transparent, open and accessible as well as connected to its public. Here, the Open City Policy acts as the umbrella for all open government work within Edmonton and provides the guidelines for implementation.

The project was launched in collaboration with various governmental committees such as the City’s Executive Committee, the Corporate Leadership Team, the City’s Smart City Governance Committee and the Open City and Innovation Branch, who acts as the continuous and official overseer of the project. The initiative has not only impacted how public policy decisions are made, it has also resulted in the creative use of data by citizens, developers and businesses. After one year of implementation, Edmonton managed to have up to 927 datasets and 53% returning users.
