Open Data

In November 2015, the Government of Ontario introduced the requirements set out in the Open Data Directive as part of its commitment to improve transparency, accountability and openness. On February 1, 2021, the Digital and Data Directive replaced the Open Data Directive.

The Digital and Data Directive requires all ministries and provincial agencies to:

  • create an Inventory of Data Assets within its custody or control
  • publish all datasets in an open format unless the dataset cannot be released for legal, security, confidentiality, privacy or commercially sensitive reasons (an open format is one that is platform independent, machine readable, and vendor-neutral)

You can learn more about Ontario’s Digital and Data Directive and how government data is prepared and shared publicly, on the Government of Ontario’s website.

OSC inventory of datasets

OSC Open Data Inventory

Each listing in the inventory of datasets identifies whether a dataset is currently open, restricted or under review. If a dataset is noted as being “under review,” it means that we are in the process of assessing whether it can be made public or whether it is exempt from release for legal, security, confidentiality, privacy, or commercially sensitive reasons. Use of the OSC’s datasets is subject to the Open Government Licence – Ontario.
