As part of its commitment to enhancing citizen engagement, fostering digital innovation and improving service delivery, the City of Vancouver is taking bold steps to provide more of its data to the public. This open data website supports City Council's motion on Open Data, Open Standards and Open Source.

By freely sharing its data in accessible formats while respecting privacy and security concerns Vancouver is joining many government agencies in moving to harness the energy and involvement of citizens, community-based organizations and private businesses in everything from creative community problem-solving to the development of new service delivery ideas and solutions.
