Open Data

The town is committed to being open, accessible and accountable. We’ve joined municipalities around the world by proactively opening up our data to see what’s possible when government and the community collaborate.

During our one-year pilot project (May 2014 to May 2015) our data was used to develop a variety of innovative tools and applications. Even though our pilot has ended we continue to listen to your ideas and post the creations you share with us.

Visit the open data creations page to find out how the town's data has been used.

What is Open Data?

Open data is information that is available in a format that can be read by a computer, and is made available for anyone to use, transform or republish without restriction.

On May 1, 2014, we introduced our first data catalogue featuring 10 datasets in machine-readable, re-usable digital formats that can be shared and used to develop applications, visualizations and inform public research. Our catalogue now has over 50 datasets and continues to grow.
