Advocacy Alert: Open Data (members of Parliament)

Members of Parliament Call for Open Data Approaches

Dear members of Parliament,

We wish to table with you a call for Open Data approaches in Canada, illustrating the benefits with the example of the automotive sector.

Please take a few minutes to review this Open Data brief:
http://cata.ca/2018/automotive-sector-data-access/

We think the preface to the brief says it all:

“Data is to this century what oil was to the last one: a driver of growth and change. Flows of data have created new infrastructure, new businesses, new monopolies, new politics and – crucially – new economics. Digital information is unlike any previous resource; it is extracted, refined, valued, bought and sold in different ways. It changes the rules for markets and it demands new approaches from regulators. Many a battle will be fought over who should own, and benefit from, data.” (Fuel of the Future, The Economist, May 6, 2017)

Looking to Canadian wealth creation now and into the future, Open Data will be one of the keys to innovation and competitive success.

Yours sincerely,

John Reid, CEO, CATAAlliance
