The Right of Access: A Right for All

To mark Right to Know Week, join Caroline Maynard, the Information Commissioner of Canada, and three guests as they discuss the importance of access to information in Canadian society.

They will provide public servants with expert insights and new awareness of a citizen's right to access information held by government institutions. The session will also explore transparency and openness in government.
