New website aims to help Canadians hold federal government accountable

Justin Trudeau head

The Government of Canada has launched a website that allows Canadians to view a status report on all of the commitments found in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s mandate letters to ministers.

The federal government says the site — accessible on Canada.ca/Results — is intended as a way for Canadians to hold it accountable.

So far, the site says that out of a total of 364 commitments, 66 have been fully met and 218 are underway and on track for completion.

Commitments are organized by 12 categories ranging from “strong middle class” and “jobs and innovation” to “fair and open government” and “government services and operations.”

Clicking on a specific commitment will bring up further details, such as when it was first made, the steps being taken to fulfill it and the results that are anticipated or that have been achieved.

We’re working hard every day to grow the middle class and deliver real, meaningful results for people across the country,” Trudeau said in a statement on the prime minister’s website. “Canadians should have the best tools possible to hold us accountable. That is what Canada.ca/Results is all about. We want Canadians to know exactly how we’re doing, and help drive progress on issues that matter most to them.”

The PM’s website notes that the mandate letters “are not intended to be an exhaustive list of all the files a Minister needs to work on.”
