Special report: Access to information at risk from instant messaging
Every person in Canada has the right to request access to government records – a right that is preserved through various federal, provincial and territorial laws across Canada. This right is essential to foster greater government accountability and transparency.
Anyone who feels that an information request was not properly handled by a federal institution may ask the OIC to investigate the issue.
