On this week’s show Michael Lenczner and Jean-Noé Landry join me to talk about a new initiative called: Montréal Ouvert.
Montréal Ouvert is a citizen initiative that promotes open access to civic information for the region of Montreal.
We believe open access to civic information and data increases civic engagement, makes services more accessible, and creates opportunities for innovation.
Through this space we hope to initiate and sustain a productive dialogue on open access between stakeholders for the benefit of all Montréalers.

Montreal Ouvert in the News – on Datalibre.
PatinerMontreal – an Open-Data project supported by Montréal Ouvert – this attractive and efficient site tracks conditions at Montreal staking rinks.
Resto-Net – another excellent Open-Data site supported by Montréal Ouvert – updates on Montreal restaurants and food establishments.
The city operated site for restaurant health and sanitation infractions – impossibly slow to load the info. Updates not posted frequently enough.
