The B.C. government and its agencies collect and create a vast amount of data. This data represents an incredible resource for detecting trends, identifying issues and developing even better programs and services for British Columbians. Government provides many ways for you to explore, access and reuse this data – including the B.C. Data Catalogue, a central registry for ministry data, web applications and web services. In 2011, B.C. became the first province to publish its data under an open license.
