FIPA’s submission on FIPPA reform
FIPA has been busy the past few months pushing for Freedom of Information and privacy reform. During this time, we ramped up pressure on the new government with our Ipsos poll and a joint letter sent to Premier John Horgan pushing for information rights reform.
In response, the BC Ministry of Citizens’ Services has launched a public consultation on freedom of information and privacy rights in BC. Building upon our 2015 FIPPA submission, you can read our updated submission here.
Submission deadline is April 9, 2018 at 4PM. You can have your say either through online discussion, or by written submission. More information on ways to participate here: https://engage.gov.bc.ca/infoaccess/ways-to-participate-2/
The Ministry of Citizens’ Services has added a phone number and email for greater accessibility: 250-208-3591 or CitizenEngagement@gov.bc.ca.
