Key messages

  • I cannot comment on the disclosures and redactions related to orders for the production of documents, as the process falls outside of the regime in which my office operates.
  • A greater focus on voluntary disclosure of data and decisions related to the pandemic is warranted. Canadians, now more than ever, want to know about decisions that affect their health as well as the economy.
  • At the outset of the pandemic, I began signalling to the government about the importance of the right of access and the need for institutions to properly capture and store government records during times of crisis. I called on the heads of institutions to lead by example and to act now to preserve the right of access during the pandemic.
