Buy your country a beer for Canada Day!

It’s Canada Day tomorrow, and VisibleGovernment.ca is launching a fundraiser to help it build tools for open government.

Beer-3

For the cost of a beer, a pitcher, or a round, you can help Visible Government run its coming Code for Canada competition, create tools and websites that enable and promote government transparency and citizen engagement, work with similar organizations in other countries like MySociety.org in the UK and the Sunlight Foundation in the US, and work with public servants and others in government to encourage best practices for open government and citizen access to information.

Lots of people are already contributing. Join in, and use the hashtag #beers4ca to find others.

[Full disclosure: I am on the Board of Visible Government]
