Name of law: Portant Charte d'accès l'information publique et aux documents administratifs First adopted: 2011 Last modified: n/a RTI Rating last updated: n/a


The law's broad scope and application are strengths, as is its (reasonably) robust appeals mechanism, which is run through the Ombudsman. The law's chief weaknesses include poor general recognition of the right to access all government documents and a weak promotional regime. However this is far from a bad law, and as one of the newest access laws in the world we hope that the provisions here will be robustly implemented.
