Don’t miss the BC Information Summit 2010!
When public information goes private
and personal information goes public
September 29, 2010
The Theatre at UBC Robson Square Campous
This event will be of special interest to information and privacy professionals, lawyers, journalists, librarians, record managers, archivists and anyone who uses or has to deal with the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
It’s a critical time for FOI and privacy rights in BC, with some game-changing recommendations for changes to the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act on the table.
A Special Committee of the Legislature has just completed the third review of the FOIPP Act and delivered its final report to the BC Legislature on May 31.
The public wants privacy protection and more access to government information. Government officials want less scrutiny and a LOT more license to collect and share our personal information. Both are demanding major reforms of BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
Are big changes ahead for Freedom of Information and Privacy in BC?
Speakers and panelists at the 2010 BC Information Summit will debate the most important issues and recommendations that are on the table following the legislative review.
The summit will feature the maiden speech of BC’s new Information and Privacy Commissioner, Elizabeth Denham.
