Abstract

This paper examines the organizational changes that have taken place in Hamilton-Wentworth as a result of the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA) based on case studies of the regional clerk’s department and the regional police department. The findings reveal that when change occurs at the municipal level, it is important to view the organization as a compilation of the organizational structure, the groups within the organization, and the individuals who comprise those groups in order to avoid decline.
