Freedom of Information

Anyone can make a request for information regarding both federal and provincial government activities using the Freedom of Information process. This includes individual citizens, groups and journalists. Understanding the process makes for more effective information gathering, often resulting in easier acquisition of hidden information.

The PEI Citizens' Alliance hosted a workshop on accessing government information under the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FOIPP) on February 16, 2013.

Representatives from the FOIPP Commission, the PEI Justice Department and private citizens who have accessed information under the Act presented.
