Find open data.

Open Data is defined as structured data that is machine-readable, freely shared, used and built on without restrictions (Open Data 101). The Government of Canada outlines three principles of open data:

  • Availability and Access: The data must be available as a whole and at no or low cost. The data must also be available in a convenient and modifiable form.
  • Re-use and Redistribution: The data must be provided under terms that permit re-use and redistribution including the intermixing with other datasets.
  • Universal Participation: Everyone must be able to use, re-use and redistribute. For example, 'non-commercial' restrictions that would prevent 'commercial' use, or restrictions of use for certain purposes (e.g. only in education), are not allowed.
