Love Open Data? Youth Opportunities Fund Grants Now Live
The Youth Opportunities Fund’s granting data is now part of the Ontario Trillium Foundation’s (OTF) Open Data initiative. Publishing data in an open, raw, machine-readable format is giving community organizations, researchers and policy makers, easier access for greater and more reliable cross comparisons to improve policy and innovation across the sector.
OTF has had a long history of releasing information of its past grants. On August 13, 2015, OTF became the first grant maker in Canada to join the open data movement.
OTF’s sharing of data aligns with the “Open by Default” Open Data Directive of the Government of Ontario. OTF is a strong supporter of collaboration and knowledge sharing among funders for the benefit of the non-profit sector and the public policy field.
