Government Information: The Right to Information and the Protection of Privacy in Canada
by Kris Klein and Denis Kratchanov is the only publication of its kind dealing exclusively with access to information and privacy of personal information in the public sector in Canada. This is the second edition of Government Information
. The first edition was written by Colin McNairn and Christopher Woodbury and was maintained by them, through updating releases, for the period from 1989 through 2008.
sets out practice and procedure and answers questions such as • Who may request access to government information? • How should a request for access be made? • What records are and are not accessible and why? • How does one obtain his or her personal information from government? • What third party information is available and what rights exist to access it? • How are access disputes resolved? • What are the rules surrounding collection, use and destruction of personal information?
canvasses both the federal and provincial laws in this regard. Furthermore, the text incorporates how privacy laws interact with the right of access and it provides a look into how these laws attempt to protect personal information in the public sector.
The text contains the full text of all relevant federal and provincial statutes • tables of Concordance of Statutes for easy reference • and analysis of access and privacy issues relating to municipal information.
This work is a "must have" for anyone who has occasion to bring or respond to a request for access to government information or who must deal with privacy concerns in relation to personal information collected or generated by a government institution.
