Open Government

City Council approved the City of Winnipeg’s Open Government Policy in February 2017, which provides a framework to continue to move towards being more open, transparent, and accountable.

Winnipeggers seeking to be more engaged with their local government have more tools than ever at their disposal to access information and become involved in the political process. Council and committee meetings, as well as Board of Revision hearings are live-streamed and are recorded for later viewing. Hansard and disposition documents created for, and shared through the Decision Making Information System are available in machine-readable format. Residents are able to register as delegations where they can provide opinions and feedback on matters before committees and Council.

Significant work has been done to increase the amount of information that is available to the public through the City’s Open Data Portal. The City has also released the Open Capital Projects Dashboard which tracks the progress on capital projects with budgets of $15 million or more, and the Open Budget tool to explore the City’s capital spending.

The Office of Public Engagement provides residents with information on projects that are taking place across the City, and details on upcoming public engagement opportunities.

The City publishes records of interest to the public both proactively and in response to requests submitted under The Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA)
