Freedom of Information Reform — Enhancing Access. Protecting Privacy.

The B.C. government is committed to making real and meaningful improvements to its information management practices. This includes looking at ways to improve the Freedom of Information process and enhancing privacy protection to safeguard your personal information. An important part of this process is to include the input from people like you.

The Ministry of Citizens’ Services asked for your ideas about how you want to access the information that is important to you and how we can ensure your personal information is protected to the highest possible standards.

The Ministry has already received a number of recommendations for changes to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act and other valuable feedback from a variety of groups — including a Special Committee of the Legislative Assembly and the Information and Privacy Commissioner. We met with others who helped inform future changes and improvements and invited you to join the online discussion, submit written feedback, read submissions from others, and learn more about how access to information and privacy work.

This feedback, will inform any changes and improvements to access to information and privacy protection. We look forward to sharing this information with you in the coming months.
