This resource package includes presentation files and additional resources for Hillary Hartley’s Keynote Presentation at the Canadian Open Data Summit (CODS18) on November 8, 2018 in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Sharing of this package is made possible by ODX in partnership with Niagara Connects.

The State of Open Data reviews the open data movement’s development over the past 10 years. A straightforward assessment of successes or failures, it looks back in order to look forward at how best to shape the future of open data worldwide. The presentation is based on a project funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) under the
Open Data for Development (OD4D) Programme.

Speaker: Jean-Noé Landry is a social entrepreneur and Executive Director of OpenNorth, Canada’s leading not-for-profit organization specialized in open government, open smart cities, and civic technology. As an open data expert, he convenes data stakeholders, promotes data standardization, and connects governments to their data constituents. As a co-founder of Montreal Ouvert (whose mission is now complete), he advocated for Montreal’s adoption of open data as official policy. As an entrepreneur, he scaled CitizenBudget, an online budget simulator designed to engage citizens in budget decision-making, to more than 100 cities across North America. With a background in organizational change and conflict resolution, he spent 15 years in international development and has worked in more than 12 countries, including Serbia, Kenya, Tunisia, and Ukraine providing support to political institutions and civic movements on coalition building, policy development, and electoral processes. He has led OpenNorth to collaborate with all levels of Canadian government, from Federal institutions to small municipalities, while connecting Canada’s open data community to the global open government movement. With its values-driven mission and applied research approach, OpenNorth develops models and engagement practices for inclusive and open smart cities and shared data governance in an era of open data and government transformation. Starting in 2019, OpenNorth will be delivering a new one-to-one advisory service on open smart cities for communities across Canada as the Lead Technical Partner of Evergreen’s Future Cities Program for the Government of Canada’s Smart Cities Challenge Community Support Program.
