Although Saskatchewan’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act is 20 years old, there is no detailed manual explaining how to use it.
That changed today with the release of a 24-page guide produced by CUPE’s research department to assist union members navigate Saskatchewan’s freedom of information acts.
The public’s right to know is essential in a democratic society, says the guide’s author Cheryl Stadnichuk, a CUPE researcher who has made extensive use of Saskatchewan’s freedom of information acts.
“Unfortunately, obtaining information from government can be difficult. Our hope is the guide will make the freedom of information legislation easier to understand and use.”
