About

The Grace-Pépin Access to Information Award is presented annually to an individual, group or organization that demonstrates an exceptional contribution to the promotion and support of the principles of transparency, accountability, and the public’s right to access information held by public institutions. Read the fact sheet.

Presented once a year to an individual, group or organization, the Grace-Pépin Access to Information Award is a non-monetary award. It consists of a letter of appreciation and an engraved trophy. The Grace-Pépin Access to Information Award was launched in 2011 by the Office of the Information Commissioner of Canada in collaboration with its provincial and territorial counterparts. The award was created in memory of John Grace (1927-2009) former Information Commissioner of Canada, and Marcel Pépin (1941-1999) founding-president of the Commission d'accès à l'information du Québec. Both made significant contributions to the development and promotion of access to information principles in Canada.
