Open Science Action Plan

Natural Resources Canada's (NRCan's) Open Science Action Plan is an evergreen approach to providing greater access, transparency, and openness to NRCan scientific research and activities. The Plan outlines how the Department can be as 'open as possible and as closed as necessary' in order to maximize access and collaboration, while maintaining respect for privacy, security, ethical considerations and appropriate intellectual property protection. It represents opportunity for the department to increase public engagement and trust, broaden participation in research, create new opportunities for innovation and prosperity, and advance the diversity of knowledge systems and perspectives. Through the Open Science Action Plan, NRCan reaffirms its commitment to maximize the release of information and data to support transparency, accountability, citizen engagement, and measure the socio-economic benefits of Open Science.
