  • Improved efficiency and effectiveness of government services
  • Impact measurement of policies

Why a Pilot Project?

The Town of Newmarket is undertaking a pilot project to open up a selected number of datasets in time for the Go Open Data Conference on May 6, 2016. 

In the months ahead, we will be making more data available. We encourage users to give us feedback and your thoughts of this pilot project, and to share with us not only the data they’d like to have available, but also potential uses of the data (e.g. mobile/web applications). Please send us your comments and ideas to open@newmarket.ca
