On February 25, 2004, the government announced the mandatory publication of information concerning the reclassification of positions in the Public Service of Canada.
This dataset provides information on the reclassification of positions by department and agencies on a quarterly basis.
Building a comprehensive data inventory as required by section 6.3 of the Directive on Open Government:
“Establishing and maintaining comprehensive inventories of data and information resources of business value held by the department to determine their eligibility and priority, and to plan for their effective release.”
Creating a data inventory is among the first steps in identifying federal data that is eligible for release. Departmental data inventories has been published on the Open Government portal, Open.Canada.ca, so that Canadians can see what federal data is collected and have the opportunity to indicate what data is of most interest to them, helping departments to prioritize data releases based on both external demand and internal capacity. The objective of the inventory is to provide a landscape of all federal data. While it is recognized that not all data is eligible for release due to the nature of the content, departments are responsible for identifying and including all datasets of business values as part of the inventory exercise with the exception of datasets whose title contains information that should not be released to be released to the public due to security or privacy concerns.
All institutions subject to the Access to Information (ATI) Act are required to post summaries of completed ATI requests within thirty calendar days after the end of each month.
Download ATI summaries from key federal institutions below. Moving forward, summaries from additional institutions will be added and enhancements made to improve the dataset.
Please note: Requests focusing on personal information or third party proprietary information are not included in the dataset.
The National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) program is the main source of ambient air quality data in Canada. The NAPS program, which began in 1969, is now comprised of nearly 260 stations in 150 rural and urban communities reporting to the Canada-Wide Air Quality Database (CWAQD). Managed by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in collaboration with provincial, territorial, and regional government networks, the NAPS program forms an integral component of various diverse initiatives; including the Air Quality Health Index (AQHI), Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI), and the US-Canada Air Quality Agreement. Once per year, typically autumn, the Continuous data set for the previous year is reported on ECCC Data Mart.
This dataset contains the object code classification structure and the descriptions for each of the object codes. The object code is a field in the government-wide coding block. It identifies the types of goods or services acquired, the transfer payments made, the source of revenue or the cause of increases or decreases in assets and liabilities. The object code information provides:
a structure for reporting the nature of transactions in the Estimates and in the Public Accounts
a standard classification of transactions for internal departmental analysis and use by central management
the basis used by Statistics Canada to more accurately determine and report the impact of government revenues and expenditures on the rest of the economy
In addition, the object coding allows the information to be useable at a government-wide level, which reduces the number of individual requests central agencies must make to departments and agencies.
The primary purpose of the authority codes is to identify expenditure transactions for accountability and reporting in the Public Accounts of Canada according to the specific votes and other authorities in the Estimates, other authorities included in specific statutes; and in addition, to identify the nature of revenue, by tax and non-tax revenue. Other authority codes (non-appropriated authorities) are also established by central agencies to facilitate the identification of various accounting transactions that do not require the use of appropriations. An appropriation is an authority of Parliament to pay money out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund (CRF) and as such, provides parliamentarians with control over most expenditures of the government. As a general rule, transactions are recorded against an appropriation on an expenditure basis; however, there are certain expenditures that are not charged to an appropriation until a payment is required.
This publication summarizes the status of the retail mobile sector and provides insight to the level of competition by comparing various metrics of the top 3 mobile service providers, in terms of revenue and subscriber markets share, against the other mobile service providers in Canada. In 2020, the Commission revamped the data collections for the mobile sector to capture mobile services in three distinct categories: 1. Mobile phone 2. Mobile broadband and 3.
