Departments must maximize the release of open data and open information by ensuring that all data and information resources specified [in Appendix B] are considered for release.

Deliverables to be completed in 2014-2016:
C.1.1 Develop and publish a government-wide Open Science Implementation Plan which lays out strategies and milestones
C.1.2 Establish an online service to enable a one-stop search for publications and data resulting from federally-funded scientific activities.
C.1.3 Establish common Open Access requirements for federally funded scientific research.
C.1.4 Develop inventories of scientific data, and initiate the public release of data supporting scientific research publications.
C.1.5 Publish and maintain a consolidated online list of peer-reviewed articles by Government of Canada scientists dating back to 2012.
The draft is open for consultation until noon Eastern time, Monday October 20, 2014. You can contribute to the consultation by leaving a comment at the bottom of the draft document. (Note: this is the fourth and probably final phase of consultation on the 2nd Open Gov Action Plan.)
