Right to Know Week
The City of Calgary strives to be a transparent organization and promoting freedom of information is essential for good governance, quality service delivery and effective citizen engagement.
This year, The City is celebrating your right to access government information as part of Right to Know Week.
RTK Week promotes the benefits of access to information and the rights of Canadians to transparent and open government. The goal of RTK Week is to raise awareness of an individual's right to access government information and to promote access to information.
In Alberta, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) Act is the legislation which provides the framework for access to information requests and protection of personal information.
Acting in a transparent and open manner is a top priority of The City of Calgary. At The City we understand the importance of transparency in government, and work to ensure that citizens have that right of access.
