Frustrated? We get it. Bureaucracy can have that effect on people. There are already some resources available online to guide you through the process of getting your records:
- #cdnfoi is a Twitter hashtag dedicated to frustration with Canadian FOI systems
- the Canadian Government has a list of FAQ about the ATIP Act
- the Canadian Health Advocates Inc. lists all patient rights by province
- an article written by a journalist Justin Ling in The Walrus details some of the difficulties in making FOI requests.
You should also consider us a resource. We’ve learned quite a lot (and will continue to learn) about how to successfully navigate bureaucracy, and we’d love to pass this knowledge on to you.
