A Canadian Solution

Our Vision

Canada is home to over 4,000 municipalities. Many of these are not large cities, but small towns - without large IT budgets. Open Data in Canada needs a unique approach - one built by Canadians for Canadians.

OpenGovGear is proud to introduce an affordable triad of plans to do just that. Leveraging CKAN, we are able to bring the benefits of a big budget Open Data solution at a fraction of the cost.
