Inventory of Government of Canada Organizations

The Inventory of Government of Canada Organizations provides a picture of the composition of the federal government. It also provides Web links to an interactive structure of the federal government and the business and activities of its institutions, and will be updated on a quarterly basis. The Inventory includes a comprehensive overview of federal government institutions and its corporate interests, and offers a detailed corporate profile of each organization. This year, this report has been further redesigned to reflect the Government's commitment to Open Government and is presented to Canadians and Parliament online only. Quarterly updates will give Canadians access to the most up-to-date and relevant information.

The new Inventory of Government of Canada Organizations supports the Government's commitment to openness and transparency and to modernizing how we serve Canadians.
