The Annual “Hot Issues in Access to Information Conference” will be held on April 28, 2010 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm in Ottawa, Ontario. The event will focus on the Access to Information Act (ATIA) and the access to information aspects of the Privacy Act (PA). It will offer ATIP and other access to information professionals the opportunity to hear from experts in the field.
The conference is being presented by the legal experts at Heenan Blaikie and sponsored by Ottawa software company Privasoft, who have come together to bring the ATIP community tips from the ATIP trenches that will help them manage a successful and efficient ATIP operation.
ATIP coordinators and access to information professionals will want to attend this event to learn about the latest issues in ATIA from industry experts. Speakers will include Edith Cody-Rice, Senior Counsel with the CBC and Ross Hodgins, Senior Advisor in the Office of the Information Commissioner.
The event will kick off with a light lunch during registration, followed by a discussion on the recent developments in access to information exemptions. Attendees will learn about the latest advancements with Access Impact Assessments and proactive disclosure, along with what records may be the subject of an access request as a result of the recent fallout from the Prime Minister’s Agenda case and the latest decisions on delay. All attendees will receive an information package with written materials from the event.
