Open Data Waterloo Region is a community group that advocates for governments and institutions in Waterloo Region, Ontario, to adopt open data policies. We want the default approach to be one of making data available to the public in machine-readable standard formats, to be up-to-date, and under a license that allows its effective use. Open data fosters better participation of the community in government and vice versa, and would also make cross-use within governments more effective.

We’ve been around since September 2010. In addition to this site, we also have a Twitter account and a discussion list.
