Opening the Government of Canada presents a compelling case for a more open model of governance in the digital age - but a model that also continues to uphold democratic principles at the heart of the Westminster system. Amanda Clarke details the untold story of the federal bureaucracy's efforts to adapt to digital-age pressures from the mid-2000s onward. This book reveals the mismatch between the bureaucracy's closed government traditions and evolving citizen expectations and digital tools. Striking a balance between reform and tradition, lays out a roadmap for building a democratically robust, digital-era federal government.
