For Public Bodies

The Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (ATIPPA) provides the public with a right of access to records held by a public body and regulates public bodies’ collection, use, disclosure, retention, and security of personal information.

The IPC is responsible for overseeing how ATIPPA is administered to ensure its purposes are achieved.  To carry out this responsibility, the IPC has a number of powers including that she may comment on the implications to privacy and access to information of existing or proposed legislative schemes or programs of public bodies.  She also has the power to investigate complaints about public bodies’ administration of ATIPPA and conduct reviews of public bodies’ decisions made or taken in respect of access to information or improper collection, use and disclosure of personal information.

This website has information that will help public bodies meet their obligations under ATIPPA.
