The Trudeau government is making a series of moves to rebuild public trust after a tumultuous year.
Among the measures announced Wednesday is a $30-million pilot project with the Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC), which is seeking to make public opinion polling more transparent, a major change that has come under fire from the opposition.
Other changes are aimed at keeping Canadians informed and improving transparency in government, including an overhaul of how government data is stored and accessed.
The Liberals are also introducing a bill that would make it easier for Canadians to find information about the public service.
The new law would make public service information more accessible online, and the government says it will provide online public information in a format that’s similar to that offered by provincial governments.
