Right to Know Week will take place in Canada from September 24-28, 2012. This year marks the seventh year that Canadians have celebrated Right to Know Week, an initiative designed to raise awareness about people’s right to access government information and to promote freedom of information as essential to both democracy and good governance.
In conjunction with this important campaign, Newspapers Canada will release its seventh annual National Freedom of Information (FOI) Audit and related materials during Right to Know Week.
Events are being held in cities across the country to commemorate Right to Know Week, including the B.C. Information Summit and numerous talks on government openness and transparency.
