Welcome to OpenDataBCOpenDataBC is a collaborative effort by a group of B.C. citizens. We want to help all of us to have better access to information, so that we understand our government better. To answer questions such as how goverment spends our money, and what data is used to make decisions on our behalf.
You can use this site to find the open data that is available about British Columbia. Maybe you are looking for an answer to a specific question, or perhaps you are curious about what data is available.
We believe that open data helps to promote innovation, because citizens can use government datasets to build applications, ask better questions, and provide alternative answers and solutions.
