New Access to Information Database

David McKie, an award-winning member of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's investigative reporting unit, has set up an access to information / freedom of information website that "allows you to search a database of requests for information filed with departments and agencies of the Canadian government under Canada's Access to Information Act".

"The information in this database was entered by federal institutions into the Coordination of Access to Information Requests System (CAIRS), a software program maintained by the Department of Public Works and Government Services. Monthly reports from the CAIRS database are obtained from Treasury Board Secretariat, another agency of the Canadian government, by Access to Information Act requests."

This website takes over from where Syracuse University professor Alasdair Roberts left off in August 2005.
