Gov’t To Establish Online Access-to-Information Portal
INFORMATION ACCESSOctober 12, 2012
The Globe and Mail reports on government plans for a pilot project to launch early next year that will allow citizens to request internal documents under the Access to Information Act via the Internet. At the start, the initiative would involve three departments but would later expand to include most federal agencies. Mexico has a similar portal, and the U.S. recently established its own.
