Open Cities Index

The Open Cities Index (OCI) was developed by PSD in partnership with Canada's Open Data Exchange (ODX) as an appraisal framework to gauge the level of openness in cities across Canada. The OCI serves to audit existing open data initiatives at municipalities and allows participating organizations to compare themselves against their peer groups and track their openness over time based on specific dataset classifications. The OCI gives participating cities access to a number of tools and services that can be used to further develop open data initiatives, ensure they are supported in the future and allow for collaborative developments in open government across Canada.
