Clarification (March 18, 2024): While the Investigative Journalism Foundation’s Open By Default database includes roughly 20,000 records released by federal departments and agencies in response to access-to-information requests, The Globe and Mail’s Secret Canada project is broader in scope, encompassing summaries of more than 300,000 requests made to over 600 federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal institutions across the country.
