Comments of the Québec Ombudsman on the Five-Year Report of the Commission d'accès à l'information
The Québec Ombudsman offered comments on the Commission d'accès à l'information (CAI) 2011 Five-Year Report: Technology and Privacy, in a Time of Societal Choices, submitted for general consultation to the Commission des institutions. The Ombudsman supports most of the recommendations in the report. It notes, however, that several of the recommendations will have an impact on the CAI's ability to exercise the duties assigned to it under the Act respecting access. The wait times to be heard by a CAI commissioner are already quite long.
