Library and Archives Canada celebrates Right to Know Week

Banner: Right to Know

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is happy to be part of the group of 40 countries and 60 non-governmental organizations that celebrate Right to Know Week (September 24 to September 30) and Right to Know Day (September 28) with the aim of raising awareness about an individual's right to access government information. Freedom of information is essential to both democracy and good governance.

Every Canadian has the right to request access to government records—a right that is preserved through various federal, provincial and territorial laws across Canada. This democratic right is essential to fostering greater governmental accountability and transparency.
