Transparency means openness. It allows Canadians to hold the government accountable through the proactive release of information on government activities, programs, policies, and services in formats that are easy to find, access, and use. Transparency is the key element in the Government of Canada's Commitment to Open Government, which aims to increase access to data, information and dialogue.

IDRC exercises transparency by providing information on its website, and in its publications, reports to Parliament and public outreach programs. In addition, as a research organization, IDRC also maintains transparency with the research community, and the general public, by making the results of its projects - studies, papers, articles, etc. available to all.
