Event Description:

Have you ever wondered what LAC does with your government records once they become part of the national archival collection? How it makes them available to present and future generations of Canadians? Did you know that LAC has opened over 35 million pages of previously exempted records under Canada’s Access to Information and Privacy legislation? Attend this session and find out!

This session will examine the proactive, risk-based, Block Review process at LAC. The presenters will explain the methodology, procedures and results of this process.
