On March 31, Information Commissioner Suzanne Legault tabled a special report in Parliament that proposes an in-depth reform of the Access to Information Act. The comprehensive report titled Striking the Right Balance for Transparency–Recommendations to modernize the Access to Information Act contains 85 recommendations for improving and modernizing Canada’s existing right-to-know laws, which were first adopted in 1982. “There has been a steady erosion of access to information rights in Canada over the last 30 years” said Commissioner Legault. “Although the Act was intended to shine a light on government decisions, it has become a shield against transparency and has encouraged a culture of delay.” Some of the key points contained in the report are aimed at creating a culture of openness by extending coverage of the Act to all branches of government, setting tighter timelines in the processing of requests, maximizing disclosure and strengthening the oversight of the access to information regime.
