2010 FOIP Act Review

On April 13, 2010, the Legislative Assembly of Alberta appointed an all-party special committee to review the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act, as required under section 97 of the Act. The Committee was comprised of the members from the Standing Committee on Health.

Albertans were invited to participate in the review by submitting their comments to the Committee by June 30, 2010. The Committee considered all submissions and submitted its Final Report (PDF) which was tabled in the Legislative Assembly on November 15, 2010. The Report contained twenty-four recommendations, including suggested amendments to the FOIP Act.
