CAJ Winnipeg: Ombudsman AMA

September 25, 2019
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Right to Know How: Exercising Your Rights Under FIPPA

Access to information provides individuals with knowledge to address public issues, scrutinize government and become active participants in the democratic process. In Manitoba, the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA) governs access to general information and personal information held by public bodies and sets out how public bodies must protect the privacy of personal information.

Join ombudsman staff for an interactive FIPPA session on September 25 during Right to Know Week. Right to Know celebrates the democratic right of access to information and promotes open and accountable government. Jill Perron (ombudsman), Nancy Love (deputy ombudsman), Jacqueline Bilodeau (investigations manager) and Linda White (investigator) will talk about Manitoba Ombudsman’s role in the access to information process, share some FIPPA tips and answer your questions. 

The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Room W102, 160 Princess St. (Red River College's Exchange District Campus). Please RSVP by emailing [email protected] if you plan on attending.
