Scope of the review

The current review will examine three broad areas:

  • Reviewing the legislative framework;
  • Finding opportunities to improve proactive publication to make information openly available;
  • Assessing processes and systems to improve service and reduce delays.

The review has engaged with Canadians on these important issues. And of course, it has sought the views of the Information Commissioner on how to improve the way access to information works for Canadians. You can access the written submissions received through the public engagement process and learn more about what was said.

As part of these consultations, the review is now seeking the views of Indigenous peoples on aspects of the system that are important to them.

A final report of the review will be presented to the President of the Treasury Board in 2022. The report will be tabled in Parliament and published online.
