Possible delays in proactive publication of information

Openness, transparency and accountability are guiding principles of the Government of Canada. However, the Government of Canada's ability to meet timelines for proactive publication may be affected by the current circumstances and exceptional measures put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and protect the health and safety of our employees. As a result there may be delays in the proactive publication of information during this period. Making government information available to Canadians proactively continues to be important to us. We will continue to make reasonable efforts to meet the timelines for the proactive disclosure of government information, in accordance with operational realities. Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during this period as we all navigate these unprecedented challenges.


Making government more accessible and transparent to everyone, OpenGAC gives you access to Global Affairs Canada data and information, proactive disclosure and transparency, and more. This site will keep expanding, so check back regularly for updates.

In October 2018, Canada became co-chair of the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
