The Access to Information Act (the Act) came into effect on July 1, 1983.
The Act gives Canadians, permanent residents and any other person in Canada a general right of access to information contained in government records, subject to certain exemptions.
Pursuant to section 72, the head of every federal institution shall prepare an annual report on the administration of the Act within the institution. The reports are submitted to Parliament at the end of each fiscal year.
This report provides information on the activities of the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) related to the administration of the Act during the 2017–18 fiscal year.
