It is critical that the federal access to information system be modernized to align it with more progressive models. The Information Commissioner will continue to promote reform by identifying the gaps between the intent of the legislation and its deficiencies in ensuring that Canadians’ right of access to information is respected. Finally, in his role as an Officer of the legislation, he will advise and make recommendations on how best to achieve the goals envisioned by the legislation, i.e. a more informed dialogue between political leaders and citizens, improved decision making, and greater transparency.
