Opening Up Government

“Open Government is about giving people a sense of confidence that government is working for them, not trying to do something to them.”

Premier Christy Clark,
2011 Year End Report

We are working to make British Columbia the most open provincial government in Canada and I am committed to being the most connected premier in history.

The important steps we’ve taken so far include:

  • Establishing an Auditor General for Local Government to help municipalities find cost savings and keep property taxes under control

  • Establishing an Independent Investigation Office led by Richard Rosenthal to provide independent oversight of our police

  • Open data initiative – posting 2,700 data sets online, with more to come

  • Released reviews of BC Hydro and Community Living BC in their entirety, even parts that were critical of government


  • Town hall meetings across B.C.

  • Quarterly reports to the province via webcast

  • Greatest percentage of women in cabinet – 44 per cent of ministers
