York Region’s Open Data

Hands typing on keyboard

York Region’s Open Data Program has been recognized as a Top 20 program in Canada by Public Sector Digest through its Open Cities Index (OCI) benchmarking initiative.

The annual survey of 61 Canadian Open Data programs was released earlier this month and has York Region increasing 22 positions from 36 in 2016 to 14 in 2017. This is a substantial increase and reflects the hard work and dedication of the Open Data Advisory Board and York Region staff.

York Region’s Open Data Program was created under York Regional Council’s guidance and direction to increase transparency and make it easier for residents to access Regional information and services. To date, 175 datasets have been released to the public through a publication process that protects privacy.  Over a five-year period, data downloads have steadily increased at a rate of 30 per cent each year, from 784 downloads in 2012 to more than 6700 downloads in 2017.
