IOG Autonomy Index

A measurement of the overall autonomy that a public sector body has from core government.

Where do you fit on the Governance Continuum?

The IOG Autonomy Index provides a measurement of the overall autonomy that a public sector body has from direct government control (e.g.: your Minister). The scale runs from 1 to 100, with the highest score indicating the greatest degree of autonomy.

Using our specially crafted categories and data collection methods, the index demonstrates how some public sector organizations are subject to a high degree of ministerial oversight (e.g.: core departments such as the Department of National Defence and Transport Canada), while others enjoy a significant degree of operational and budget autonomy (e.g.: Crown corporations such as VIA Rail), while still others fall somewhere in between (e.g.: agencies, board, and commissions such as the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission).
