FIPA has commissioned BC’s first-ever formal survey of people who have made requests for information under the province’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
The survey is designed to determine whether it has become easier or more difficult to obtain information under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP Act) over the past five years.
The survey is being conducted by Professor Martin Dowding of the UBC School of Library, Archival and Information Studies, with the assistance of two Masters students.
Anyone who has made a request under the FOIPP act is invited to participate by filling out an online survey form.
The survey will be administered by email and consists of 35 questions. We anticipate that the survey will take between 10 and 30 minutes to answer. Your participation will be greatly appreciated and will help contribute to more transparent governance in British Columbia.
Please forward this email invitation to any person or organization that you feel will benefit from completing the survey!!!
