Open North is a Canadian non-profit that creates online tools to educate and empower citizens to participate actively in Canadian democracy. We develop tools for civil society and governments to reduce the barriers to effective participation. We do this with two main strategies:
1. Improve access to government information
2. Make participation easy, fun, and meaningful
