Personal information

We will make it easier for Canadians to access their own personal information.

Canadians have a right to access their personal information held by the government.

To make accessing this information faster, less complicated, and more affordable, we will create a simple, central, no-fee website for personal information requests.

We will back this up with a 30-day guarantee: should a request take longer than 30 days to fulfill, government must provide a written explanation for the delay to the applicant and the Privacy Commissioner.
