A draft regulation that increases citizens' access to information

Corps

The purpose of the draft Regulation to amend the Regulation respecting the Gazette officielle du Québec is to abolish the annual subscription price for the electronic versions of Parts 1 and 2 of the Gazette officielle du Québec posted on the Publications du Québec website.

In a letter to the President and Director General of the Centre de services partagés, the Ombudsperson endorses the new provisions, which she sees as providing greater access to information for citizens who want to contribute to the government's decisional process by giving their opinion on the draft regulations that affect them.
