The project’s fundamental goal was to strengthen links between citizens and government to increase government transparency, ensure citizens’ inclusion in the planning of public resources, and increase the public’s trust in the government. It aimed at increased positive engagement between citizens and federal, provincial, and local government institutions on public policy, service delivery, and good governance.
