September 28, 2016 is International Right to Know Day. International Right to Know Day is celebrating its 14th anniversary. It had its start in 2002, at a meeting of international access advocates in Sofia, Bulgaria. They proposed that the date be dedicated to the promotion of access to information worldwide.
The goal of Right to Know Day is to raise global awareness of individuals’ right to access government information and to promote access to information as a fundamental right. Right to Know Day has grown since 2002 and is celebrated around the world in over 40 nations. Over 80 countries have access to information legislation and more countries are in the process of developing such laws.
This year marks the 11th year Canadians have celebrated international Right to Know Week.
The Information and Privacy Commissioner for Nova Scotia is participating in this worldwide effort to raise awareness about the importance of the right to access information, with a local focus on what it means to those living and working in Nova Scotia. The Information and Privacy Commissioner has invited the Province of Nova Scotia and all the Municipalities of Nova Scotia to issue a Proclamation designating September 26 to October 2, 2016 as Nova Scotia's Right to Know Week in their respective jurisdictions.
