That one says federal government. Somewhere they have a kit with the municipal

want. Exact license is the one the City of Ottawa uses just sub "City of
Ottawa" with your city name.
Note to Tracey and or Kent could you be very nice and point Rob to the exact
municipal Open Data license 2.0 that
TB drew up.
I do not see either the open-government-license-canada or the TB open
data license, or a Canadian "municipal data license 2.0" listed at
My understanding is that the "City of Ottawa Open Data License 2.0" received
special approval from the LWG.
It is also my understanding that substituting "City of Ottawa" with "Region
of Durham" would still require the LWG to approve the Durham license.
It is my understanding that the act of substitution is enough of a change to
require the LWG to need to look at it.
I don't see open-government-licence-canada listed as a compatible
generic license on the wiki page.
If anyone is aware of something written from the LWG that says otherwise
please post a link.
Many Thanks John

I was involved in getting the Ottawa Open Data building outlines into OSM
working with Stats Canada.
Based on that experience you need to go through some steps..
Step one concerns the license. Regional Municipality of Durham open data
license almost certainly has not
been approved by the LWG. The choices are formally adopt the Treasury Board
license for Open Data as Ottawa
has done or ask Alessandro nicely about whether Stats Can can make it available
through the TB open data
portal. The third choice would be submit it to the LWG. The backlog is
substantial and I'd expect at least
at year, possibly two before gaining approval if they thought it was perfect.
The data can also be formally given to OpenStreetMap, ie supplied but not under
your Open data license. I
understand Vancouver followed this route.
One the license is sorted out then there is a further process to follow and
that would be tight for March
I suggest sorting out the license first.
