The open government data licensing situation in Canada has a very confusing history and the multitude of local licences does not help. Further: different names (Open Government Licence and Open Data Licence) have been used for licences based on the same base licence and the same name (Open Data Licence) has been used for licences based on different base licences, confusing the situation even more.
