GO Open Data is a community-driven annual conference by and for the Ontario Open Data community. GO Open Data 2016 (GOOD16) is a collaborative effort between IT professionals, bloggers, community and economic developers, city planners, civil servants and more.

By definition, open data is machine-readable data that can be freely used, reused and redistributed by anyone – subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and share-alike.

Open data means transparency and efficiency in government. It means developers can use open data to create innovative solutions and new businesses that help address community problems such as transportation or affordable housing. It means more engaged citizens, bringing together public and private organizations and bridging gaps.

Registration is online-only – there will be no on-site registration.
