The Access to Information Act is a federal statute that provides a process for Canadian citizens, permanent residents, persons physically in Canada, or corporations present in Canada to request access to any record of certain institutions of the federal government. These institutions, such as SDTC, are required to provide access to records under their control upon receiving formal request for information made pursuant to the Access to Information Act unless the records or portion thereof are exempted or excluded from disclosure.
