From Sept. 1 to Oct. 31, 2022, the public is invited to provide input as part of a comprehensive review of the Right to Information and Protection of Privacy Act. The Act gives any person a right to access information held by government and other public sector organizations, with some exceptions. It also upholds an individual’s right to privacy respecting their personal information. To ensure the legislation stays current, the Act is reviewed every four years.
