Vision

Canada is a country in which open data, citizen science, evidence-based policy-making, and broad public engagement with research data and science flourish. Research data are considered a public good and there is broad recognition of the value of this data beyond the research community.

Research Data Canada plays a major role in ensuring that these data are available for researchers and innovators.
