Implement an Open Source Action Plan

An Open Source Action Plan will be implemented across federal government departments, and will be promoted to the public and private sectors. The Action Plan will encourage the use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), saving money where practical and economically viable. Third party contractor shall not retain ownership of the source code from a government project.

The following policies have been approved by the Political Council and will be sent to the membership to be voted on:

-An Open Source Action Plan will be implemented across federal government departments and will be promoted to other Canadian provincial and municipal governments.

 

-The Action Plan will encourage the use of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS), saving money where practical and economically viable.

 

-Any third party contractors will not retain any rights or ownership over any source code from a government project.

 

-All source code will be released under an open source license as well.

 

-Additionally, to give back to the *nix community from which we draw on for an OS as well as other FOSS communities, we will hire and retain a number of full time programmers to work solely with the intention of giving back to the community.
