How municipal governments manage information can directly affect their ability to operate efficiently. With the ongoing requirement for information access, municipal governments must be certain that information created today will be available over time for as long as the information is required. Municipalities have a duty to document information, and Nova Scotia Office of Information and Privacy Commission has stated that records relating to the conduct of a municipality’s business are subject to the access and privacy provisions of FOIPOP and the MGA.
This hands on workshop will discuss how to implement a records information management program using the newest AMA Records Manual – 3rd version. It will also discuss the alignment to STOR and STAR (Standards for Government Records). This workshop will provide real examples to enhance your understanding of clarity around classifications. In addition, this workshop will also discuss how to make your records more accessible to the public, given the pending 2030 legislative requirements for accessibility.
