We have seen major shifts in the freedom of information and privacy landscape since our last Information Summit. This year, Information Summit 2016 will hear from experts and people intimately involved in how the world of information is changing. FIPA is pleased to bring you a variety of perspectives on the strategies being developed to meet these new challenges, and where we can expect to be in the not too distant future.

Please note: The 2016 Information Summit has been accredited by The Law Society of BC (for 6.5 credits) as well as by PACC-CCAP for Continuing Professional Development credits.
