Open Data

OVERVIEW

Ontario’s Open Data Directive requires every Ontario ministry and provincial agency to publish a list of all the datasets they create, collect and/or manage as their Data Inventory. The Data Inventory lists all datasets and identifies whether a dataset is currently open, under review, in the process of being opened or exempt from being released as open data due to legal, security, privacy, confidentiality or commercially-sensitive reasons. Publishing Data Inventories promotes greater transparency and accountability.

Financial Disclosure

On September 1, 2009, the Ontario Government announced a new mandate on travel, meal, and hospitality expenses to Ontario’s 22 largest agencies, including Ontario Clean Water Agency. As a result, the Public Sector Expenses Review Act, 2009 was enacted which requires the review of certain expenditures by the Integrity Commissioner and the quarterly posting of the expenditures on the Agency’s website.

Please note: The Ontario Clean Water Agency has been posting expense information since April 2010.  Expense claims are reviewed prior to posting, by the Integrity Commissioner of Ontario.

This website will provide information on the travel, meal, and hospitality expenses incurred by the Board of Directors, President and Chief Executive Officer and the employees who report directly to the President and Chief Executive Officer (“Designated Employees”). As well, expenses incurred by the five highest claimant employees will also be posted to this website annually, however, will not be repeated if any of these five employees are the President and Chief Executive Officer or a Designated Employee.

The rules and principles governing travel, meals and hospitality reflect the Ontario Public Service Travel, Meal and Hospitality Expenses Directive. The objective of the directive is to ensure that such expenses are modest, appropriate and strike a balance among economy, health and safety, and efficiency of operations.
