Right to Know Week in Canada
September 28 to October 5, 2007
Around the world, September 28 is celebrated as International Right to Know Day. This began in Sofia, Bulgaria, at an international meeting of access to information advocates who proposed that September 28th be dedicated to the promotion of freedom of information worldwide. The goal is to raise citizens’ awareness level about their right of access to information under the control of government institutions. These celebrations are aimed towards the citizenry, a non specialized clientele.”
